The Bhavana Project continues with the current set now in Georgia. For those unfamiliar with the Project, please follow the link above to my website. I have also organized special sets of flags that were created for specific people, such as a friend facing illness and another grieving the loss of a family member. See the photos of recent sets. The creative expression allowed friends to send their support through images or words on a flag, making it a healing journey for both the giver and receiver. These sets are always wonderfully fulfilling projects!

I have always felt the influence of light living in southern California. My fiber “paintings”, in the form of small wall hangings or flags, use the sun imagery to express light, clarity and energy. Drawing from my studies of Vedic chanting, I have titled the series Surya (Sanskrit for “sun”). For me, Surya is a connection to the heart, sharing the beauty of life through the gift of art making. The recent piece shown here, "Energy", consists of applique and thread painting.
