"Playing in the Undercurrents"​
The "undercurrents" in this rug design were initially inspired by the challenge to integrate the interior architecture of the room and its mulitple doorways with the prescribed functionality and traffic patterns. It's a fairly small room: between the built-in bookcases and seating that provide the opposing edge details, the floor area is approximately 10' x 9'. In addition to the built-ins, the interior furnishings include a small barrel chair nestled to the inside corner of the lower bookcases and a round coffee table that services the built-in couch. Backing it all down, I positioned the watery motif in the rug design below the table - an anchoring point well seen through the table's glass top with slim metal border and base. From there, the "undercurrents" - and all the many creatures playing within them - both lead to and follow from the natural openings of the rooms beyond. ​

"Underwater Love Story"

...capturing a moment between the catfish and the seahorse -​
a day dream somewhere below the warm watery surfaces...

This tapestry is best viewed with imagination and a soft gaze, 
one in which we let our eyes go a bit blurry.

"Two Sides"

Doorways - an obvious necessity for our comings and goings. When I'm walking through one... from one room to the next...I'm often fascinated with how it feels to leave one space and enter into another. The design of a rug, positioned smack on the threshold or on either side, can have an impact on how that transition feels. With un-mirrored pattern, I designed "Two Sides" to reveal two entirely different images that can elicit entirely different responses, all depending upon your imagination and from which side you choose to take in the view. In embellishing a "sense of entry" into a room that works from both sides of the threshold, the rug can be flipped... it just depends upon your mood and the desired effect.

"Ramdidas"

The graph for Ramdidas illustrates the structural basis of the design showing the limitless possibilities of what the rug can become. In assigning color and texture, the magic continues until the rug is born. 
Gazing into the rug, this "kaleidoscope of creatures" comes alive. Stepping across boundaries, these creatures - with their many varied expressions - overlap and meld together, definitions becoming diffused.  At last count, I was up to about 30. I'm always delightfully surprised when someone shows me that they've discovered yet another.
