Animal Personalities

There is a trick to capturing their charm

By: Anne Bond

Bianca, 21" x 27", #3-, 4-, and 6-cut wool on linen. Designed by Vicki Sawyer and hooked by Anne Bond, Northville, Michigan, 2017. 

Artist Vicki Sawyer paints animals. Her renditions are so full of personality and whimsy that I was drawn to them as a rug hooker and to their potential for charming rugs. When I contacted her, she was very open to the idea of her paintings becoming rugs, rendered in a different medium.

TIP: Be creative. Use lots of color and many lights, mediums, and darks.
