Phoenix Rising

I started this rug in 2020 in a Zoom class with the Multicolores Rug Hookers. This rug is inspired by Mayan and Aztec symbolism. The Phoenix stands for rebirth. My Phoenix is rising from the flames. I really enjoyed this class and learning from these talented artists.

I was imagining glowing marbles while hooking the center and playing with color.  This is my version of a hit or miss rug.

About the Artist

I have been rug hooking since 2011. It is a natural extension of my art work. My rugs have appeared in Celebration four times, and I’ve been invited to share my work in many books, magazines, blogs and rug hooking challenges. I am the president of my local guild LIGRA (Long Island Guild of Rughooking Artists) and a member of many other guilds including the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild.
