Once upon a time, Valentina from in the vibrant city of Puebla, Mexico, met Faith Berger from St Louis, Missouri. Two creative souls collided through the magical realm of Instagram. Valentina, the spirited owner of THE ART RUG, stumbled upon my artwork and was instantly captivated by its vivacity and flair. With boundless enthusiasm, she reached out to me, envisioning a thrilling collaboration that would merge my paintings with her family's esteemed rug business.

As we embarked on this exhilarating journey, I found myself swept up in Valentina's infectious passion for design and craftsmanship. Together, we embarked on a mission to infuse our rugs with the same energy and vibrancy found in my artwork. Drawing inspiration from Puebla's rich cultural tapestry, we unleashed our creativity, weaving together bold colors and intricate patterns to create rugs that were not just floor coverings, but pieces of art in their own right.

Valentina, with her deep-rooted knowledge of the rug industry inherited from her father, served as the guiding force behind our collaboration. With each stitch and weave, we poured our hearts into crafting rugs that were as versatile as they were beautiful. From sleek, modern designs to timeless classics, we left no style untouched, offering a kaleidoscope of options to cater to every taste and preference.

As word of our collaboration spread, designers and enthusiasts alike flocked to THE ART RUG, eager to experience the magic we had woven into every thread. Together, Valentina and I had not only created a collection of rugs but had also forged a bond built on mutual admiration and a shared love for creativity.

In the end, our partnership proved that when passion and enthusiasm collide, the possibilities are endless. And as our rugs found their way into homes and spaces around the world, they carried with them the spirit of two kindred souls who dared to dream and create something truly extraordinary. Transposing my paintings to create art for the floor has been an exciting venture.
