Artist, Designer, Rugmaker
Currently based in El Paso, Texas
I got interested in rug making sometime in in spring 2017 because I worked a one day gig at a luxury rug gallery to make some extra money while I was in college for fashion design.
I already had lots of designs because I study extensively in textile design and had knowledge of yarn because I also studied knitwear design. However I did not discover tufting until spring of 2019.
My rug designs are always evolving. Previously I did more geometric style designs that were inspired by Neo-Andean architecture but more recently my style has included more graphic Ed Hardy -Ish style designs of tigers and snakes. I try to depict them in motion/action as is they were roaring.
In the future I want to blend the 2 styles with geometry designs composed in the background and animals in action in the foreground.
