Louise is hooked on Deanne Fitzpatrick's free style of hooking and has done several of her mat designs.These two are her women, as Deanne says, reminiscent of her family and neighbours from Newfoundland (and Labrador).
On the left, Hortense and on the right, unfortunately, I don't have a name for her. Both are very expressive, with some details merely suggested. The viewer supplies the rest.
These are both done in wide cuts for small mats, not meant to be realistic, but rather 'impressionistic'.
