Monte is a mini tapestry rug measuring 22 inches tall. I used mill-ends yarn and cut and loop pile techniques to create his dimensional coat.


Tufting creates marks that float above the canvas support, allowing for low relief and texture beyond traditional painting media. Tufting also lends itself to the exploration of texture and pattern of fur and hair. I see my textiles as contemporary version of pelt carpets, like a bear skin rug.
