In 2019 I was very fortunate to be commissioned to create a 9’x15′ latch hook rug portrait of Minnie Pearl for the brand new Graduate Hotel in Nashville. It was a fevered marathon of hooking with a lot of help from my assistant – my mom – and patience from my 4-year old twins. In the end it took somewhere between 1000 and 1300 hours to complete.
Check out below for Minnie’s feature in Star Magazine! And below, below to see me and my crew on the night I finally completed it.
