"This rug has known the sides of feet as much as it has known the heel. It knows the bounce of laughing stars, of old friends too it knows the feel...Though its threads have long frayed bare, it binds you together in fraternal care" - these words, from a poem by emerging poet Tani, were written for my Conversations on a Hearthrug series of paintings below. I hope you will enjoy browsing through the work, and I would love it if you would like to have one of my paintings in your home to spend as much time with as you like.
