"Upon retiring, I decided to return to hooking and to hook a deer as a gift for my son, as his passion is hunting. Ready-made patterns seemed too formal, with deer looking directly at me, so, for the first time in my life, I decided to try to draw something (at age 68), and that was the beginning of a new world for me. I rode around taking pictures of swamps and trees, poured through art composition and dyeing books, dyed piles of swatches, and spent endless hours happily pushing my pencil and hook."
