About Barbara Lukas

A rug hooker since the early 1980’s, Barbara Lukas is a member of the Ontario Hooking Craft Guild, The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers and Vermont’s Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild. Her work has been exhibited at the Canadian Museum of History and the Shelburne Museum in Burlington, Vermont and appears in several rug hooking books and magazines. Her love of fibres and textures has moved her to add multi-media features to her rug hooking, and to explore other textile arts such as wool appliqué, punch hooking, embroidery, and felting.

For all Canadian artists whose works Barbara chooses to translate into textile form, she first gets permission, from the artist, or from the copyright owner if the artist is no longer alive. She then prepares the images so that they are suitable to each textile art form, enabling textile artists to apply their chosen method to the image. Only the best materials, such as linen backing and 100% wool, are used to duplicate the artworks. This ensures superior quality and durability for the longer term.
