The “Woven Voices: Messages from the Heart” project continues to grow and to captivate the attention of many individuals and communities. In August I proudly received the “Sarah Farmer Peace Award” from the Seacoast Baha’i Community. Selected from several nominated organizations and individuals, I accepted the award in recognition for my global art project, “Woven Voices: Messages from the Heart.”
This global art project continues to blossom and teach me lessons. Please participate and join the thousands of voices that speak for peace through this project. Check out the Woven Voices section on this website or the project blog to read the latest news and learn how to participate.
My residency and teaching work continues to blossom and expand. I guided several major projects in schools this fall. Check out the Educator and Mandala sections of my website to see these in detail. My education work continues to bring personal as well as professional rewards and lessons.
Back in my studio I am hard at work on several projects. I recently completed a small commission for the Krempels Brain Injury Foundation. Here is an image of the completed piece on my work table. I am in the process of sewing it to the mounting board, getting it ready for the frame. The piece includes hand-spun colored paper with writings of good wishes for the retiring executive director.
I am also working on a commission for the Temple Israel in Portsmouth. This 4′ by 7′ Tree of Life weaving that will be dedicated and installed in the temple lobby in the spring. Here is a sneak preview of the piece on the loom.
This winter and spring I will be taking two courses towards my Masters in Art and Healing through Wisdom University. I am excited and ready to deepen my commitment to this work.
Besides this website and the Woven Voices blog, I also maintain a blog for Macomber Looms. Check out this blog for all kinds of information about these hand-looms, built right here in York, Maine!
Please check out my gallery and send me a note with your thoughts about my work. I appreciate hearing from you!
As ever, thank you for your interest and support of my artwork and teaching. I hope the beauty of this earth brings you joy.
Peace to all in this season of light and love,
