Untitled 

This wall hanging was started in a workshop with Tracy Jamar. I took the workshop with her because I was interested in including three dimensional objects into my hooked pieces. I used #6 cut wool, wool yarn, novelty yarn, shirring, prodding and included quillies, buttons, and polymer clay.

About the artist

I learned to hook during the pandemic. I took a zoom workshop with Stephanie Allen- Krauss and fell in love. Having been involved in the visual arts for the past 50+ years, focusing on painting, drawing, and collage, I was delighted to have stumbled on an art form that suited my current needs. I love the meditative process…and I am amazed at how much one can experiment with technique, color, shape, and style. I approach this art medium as I would a painting and create very colorful wall hangings.

As I learn more about technique and style, my work has become more abstract. I am currently working on a series of Banshees, mythological figures from Irish folkloric wonders.
