Women’s Work

Women’s Work: I – VII

These embroideries are an exploration of that which brings us ‘home’. Through the lens of the fiber/textile process of embroidery, Women’s Work utilizes the historic trademark of this craft to both examine that which has bound women to a life of quiet servitude, and that which then became a secret language for cultivating connection and freedom.

The inclusion of the corn in this piece speaks to the teachings of the corn mother – our relationship to the earth, our ability to nurture and sustain ourselves and those around us, and abundance. The meditative act of creating each of these embroideries serves as a prayer for women and children around the world and across the generations.

The piece consists of 7 hand-stitched embroideries, mounted and framed together in one shadowbox frame; these individual pieces are not available for sale separately, only as a group, but private commissions of similar aesthetic are welcome.

The original piece and commissions are available for purchase in my store.
