Design by MLE, Yarmouth

My media of choice is the floorcloth, a canvas-backed floor covering used since Revolutionary times. Floorcloths give me the opportunity to create practical custom pieces by combining paint, fabric, paper, ribbon, photographs, and even neckties. The result is a high-quality, handcrafted piece for residential and commercial use that adds excitement to any setting. Adding to its versatility, the piece can also be used as a wall hanging.
