Artist Statement: “The pieces in this exhibit have had a long life cycle. The framed art began as doodles in Amy’s sketchbook that she turned into coloring pages. Eventually she started coloring and painting the originals which you see here. Fast forward many years. Cyndy discovered them in their coloring page form, enlarged one of the patterns (Blooming Lotus), turned it into a hooked rug and a collaboration was born. Cyndy has since taken a variety of Amy’s patterns and made them into gorgeous rugs. She also connected Amy with RugHook.com and her patterns are now available to “hookers” all over the world. This exhibit showcases Amy’s originals, the rugs Cyndy has made with Amy’s patterns, and additional rugs and art pieces that were not created in collaboration but highlight how in sync the two artists are in their creativity and aesthetic.”
