About the Rugs

My love of folk art lead me to have an interest in traditional rug hooking for many years, but I didn’t start hooking until 1998. I tend to be more interested in wide cut/primitive styles, than in the finer, shaded
(more realistic looking) work.

SInce I have never been interested in following patterns, my husband Bob Eckstein has drawn the rugs that I have hooked. Bob is an illustrator, New Yorker cartoonist and writer . You can see some of his work at his websites:
