I chose the name Primitive Spirit because my designs are in the primitive style of rug hooking. The look is vintage, stylized, with soft, time-worn colors. These are the colors I live with and make me feel at home and happy.
Other than my mail order business, occasionally I travel to teach about color. I have written articles in Rug Hooking Magazine, and have a rug chosen for the annual publication A Celebration Of Hooked Rugs 2011.
I publish several dye books that feature my antique colors, as well as The Marbleized Wool Book on creating colorful wool without using dyes.
