Tufted Series: Deforested Amazon (2021)



Each tufted work is made with 100% wool, water resistant, moth proof, and durable. Each rug is finished with backing fabric.
These tufted works are designed and inspired by referencing Google Earth screen shots from the deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest.
Each rug is made of organic wool, recycled PET yarns, or recycled wools. This ongoing project is made with the financial support from the 2022 three month Project Stipend  from the Cultural Foundation of the Free State of Saxony (KdfS) & the three month project stipends from the Kulturamt Leipzig in 2021.

Interested in having a carpet but wish for a specific size or color pattern? View a selection of Google Earth Images and potential future designs inspired by illegal deforestation here.
With every sold rug in the Shapes of Destruction series, I will donate 10% to Amazon Watch Organization

For 25 years, Amazon Watch has protected the rainforest and advanced the rights of Indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. Amazon Watch protects millions of acres of rainforest every year by partnering with Indigenous peoples – the best stewards of the forest – to directly challenge the corporate and government powers that threaten the Amazon and our climate.

The knowledge, cultures, and traditional practices of Amazon Watch’s Indigenous partners contribute greatly to sustainable and equitable stewardship of the Amazon and all of Mother Earth. Amazon Watch promotes these Indigenous-led solutions and expands capacity for Indigenous leaders, especially women, to maintain their autonomy and sovereignty for the stewardship of their ancestral territories.

Your purchase today will directly support critical efforts to protect the rainforest and stand in solidarity with Indigenous peoples. 100% of donations to Amazon Watch go to their programmatic work to stop Amazon destruction, advance Indigenous solutions and support climate justice. Thank you!

Water Series (2021)


The Water Series is a series of unique, hand made tapestries and wall hangings made up of phototransfer prints and quilted, recycled fabrics.

The printed images are of a body of water which I visited both in real life and from Google Earth.
The different shades of blue are representing the satelite depiction versus my personal perspective of the same body of water.

Each tapestry is finished with backing fabric that has fabric hooks.
Easy and ready to hang on any wall with nails.
Tapestries are very light weight and thin.
Looks great in frame, too.

Shipping is included in the price.
The works in this series are not sold with a frame.
