One Loop At A Time:

June Myles' Hooked Art

June Myles' hooked artwork engages the viewer with humor and a style that finds its origins in folk art. Alive with color, texture and movement the pieces display her sophisticated use of color, love of language and virtuoso needle skills. Her work has been exhibited widely across Connecticut and in Maine and West Virginia.
