My first priority is to create a well-designed piece, a functioning floor covering showcasing both beauty and durability. I have been weaving rugs for close to thirty years, adapting the traditional rag rug craft to my own contemporary aesthetic. As a designer I try to strike a balance between color, texture and pattern in each rug: interlacing colored yarns and strips of fabric to create infinitely variable possibilities for color and textural effects. While my rugs have a contemporary, vibrant feel they retain the texture and warmth of traditional rag rugs.
