About me

About me: The artist. The latchhooker. My name is Brent Wolters. I'm a 49 going on 50 year old man living on disability for mental health issues, in Hamilton, Ontario. One of my hobbies, aside from photography, is making portrait rugs of various celebrities (and some neighbors and friends as well...) Everyone who see's my rugs says I have "Mad skills!" and that I should be selling my rugs. My costs are around $150 per rug, and it takes me on average about 3 months to put one together. Would I like to sell them? Yes... for around $300 ea, if I could get that. So far, I've been keeping them or giving them away to whoever is featured in the rug in exchange for a picture or a video of their 'fanart' appreciation. A few rugs, I photoshopped in the relevant celebrity because I haven't gotten a response from them after trying to contact them via social media and other means. I'm always looking for feedback... My hope is that my efforts are appreciated and well received. I'm always looking for my next subject as well. Lately, I've been thinking of doing a rug featuring Dove Cameron or Miley Cyrus. Sooner or later, my art will receive some recognition, maybe? Sincerely, Brent Wolters.
