Carpet Murals

This is a medium I conceived not long after moving back to Wisconsin in 1994.  I call it a carpet mural and it’s made of pieces cut from carpet samples and remnants. The pieces are glued on a backing (usually plywood) and framed. Most are about 4 feet wide.

This one is huge: 67” x 41”. It represents some of the things I love about my property and would miss if I moved. This way I can take them with me.

Hanging in  my living room

I made this one for my niece. It represents her 5 cats.

This one was for my daughter Lois, who was a fantastic flutist.

It’s hanging on the wall in my living room.

I made created this one for friends who play horn, oboe, and English horn. It’s hanging in their music studio in Annapolis, Maryland.

“The Doubler” : I made this in 2010 for Barry Ellis as a very belated payment for his performance at my husband’s funeral in 2002.

 It hangs in the entrance of his and Terri’s home in Platteville. Barry tragically passed away very prematurely in 2018.

This was my very first carpet mural, circa 1995. It’s bolted to the shop/studio wall.
