How incredible will it be when your creativity is expressed on your hand-painted canvas rug? This is all about having fun so NOW is the time to take steps and I'll be with you each step of the way.
After painting the base coats of paint onto your canvas you'll have a toolbox of techniques you can pick and choose from. Use one or use them all and see how your design unfolds before you.

I'm here to help get the art out of your head and onto the floor.

I stumbled onto the art of making canvas rugs, or floorcloths 15 years ago. I purchased a book on how to make them and found the materials available to me in Costa Rica. Canvas rugs were such a perfect solution to life in the tropics but it's taken years for me to educate people about the what, where, and why of canvas rugs. 

After 12 or so years of posting on Facebook and Youtube, people started asking me to teach them how to make canvas rugs. 

This is my answer to the call.

I have since made canvas rugs in exclusive designs for hundreds of homes in Costa Rica, the US, and Canada with rugs featured in hotels in Costa Rica and Aruba.

Although there are many videos on my channel on Youtube these are the first consolidated collection of videos including how to make sew and paint canvas rugs 

I am always open to communication and respond to my email readers and YouTube followers with gusto. As much as I love art I love people more.
