Deanne Fitzpatrick. Fabric Artist. Rug hooker. Writer. Amherst, Nova Scotia. Active 1990 – .

Deanne Fitzpatrick was raised in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. She began making hooked rugs in 1990, hooking the rugs that she saw her mother and grandmother making. She has evolved her art, and makes her own designs and hooks them. Her designs are fluid and without boundaries and she hooks them with what can only be called an amazing and wonderful sense of colour. Deanne Fitzpatrick is collected widely, in museums and privately. She is in the permanent collections of several museums, including the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Deanne Fitzpatrick has written several books on the art of rug hooking and has also illustrated children’s book with her designs.
