See, Sew, Sing

The alley way and street sings a song of long ago, the passion of celebratory voices from many lands scatter their seeds as they unite. The chorus tells of laying granite rock on stone and brick, of sparking up spirit and rising above blood and bone.

I am drawn to the mechanical nature of my textile arts practice. Within the repetition and toiling is a space that allows me to connect with my inner peace. I feel my spirit pulsating as the piece unfolds and takes shape. My heart races as I connect with the art and the process and the piece that will never really be complete or static or resolved. Every eye that falls upon my art sees what they have earlier sown, their spirit imprints with its own light.

Wool like the spirit absorbs light and sound, it’s rich and tactile and comes from a source that has been nurtured and grown. When cared for and cherished it calls to all and sings a new song and an old song and a song of joy and hope.
