About the Author
My long career as a painter of Narrative Americana Primitives led naturally to rug hooking. My style, my colors, the effect that I achieve in my paintings moved quite fluidly into this new art form. I have been a journalist, a sailing and live aboard articles writer for cruising magazines, a potter, painter, quilter, rug hooker and am presently a cozy mystery writer. We down-sized from an antique sea captain's house on Cape Cod to a forty-four foot boat but I still paint, hook and write mysteries (a busy new career). I hope rug hookers out there will benefit from my experience striving to create "antique" rugs without having to wait a hundred years for the patina of age to set in. Have a great time and email me to tell me about your work.
