Susan Ferraro has been creating nature fiber art professionally for over 25 years. She earned her degree in Design and continued on to produce and exhibit award winning art quilts in museums, galleries, and art shows around the country.When visiting Maine, she often admired another kind of fiber art - traditional hand hooked rugs especially enjoying the design of sculpted Waldoboro rugs. Now a full-time resident of Bailey Island, Maine, Susan passionately hooks rugs, sculpture and mats. Her designs illustrate a combination of traditional rugs hooking techniques with contemporary color, dimension and style. A variety of designs with reference to coastal living and nature are available to exhibit. She also teaches small groups and likes to do commission work.
