Duncan

I used reds and pinks from my stash collection as a springboard and then went with a “kind of triadic color plan” in a hit or miss rug. I remained conscious of the effect of warm tones for the squares and cooler tones for the circles.  I’m happy with my choice of golden mustard for outlining which, with the squares and stripes, emphasizes the curves in the rug. I also scattered the circles so they would be random and not predictable.

Ann’s rug is another different, “not a checkerboard” Duncan. She used her collection of reds and pinks as a springboard and then went with “a kind of triadic color plan” in a hit-or-miss rug. She remained conscious of the effect of warm tones for the squares and cooler colors for the circles and is happy with her choice of golden mustard for outlining which, with the squares with stripes, emphasizes the curves in the rug. She also scattered the colors of the circles so they would be random and not predictable.

 

About the artist

I was introduced to rug hooking in the late 1980’s with the gift of a pillow kit.  My love of the art form really took off after the turn of the century. I have found inspiration and education from the many fellow hookers i have met over the years, as well as books and magazines.

I love all aspects of rug hooking from color planning, to hooking and finishing. My rugs evolve from an initial concept to what is often a very different final project. Having hooked traditional shaded flowers and scrolls, orientals and geometrics, my next rug will be something in the primitive style.

I live in Shrewsbury, MA with my newly retired husband and I enjoy traveling to visit my two grown children in Delaware and California.
