Inspired Energy

I am thrilled and honored to have my piece, "Energy", juried in to Sacred Threads 2011 in the Inspiration category! 
The show runs June 22 - July 4, at the Church of the Epiphany, 3301 Hidden Meadow Drive, Herndon, Virginia.

I feel a great affinity with this biennial exhibition, "established to provide a venue for quilters who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spiritual journey. The objective is to create a dignified exhibition of artwork that touches on both spiritual and personal levels for all those who view it". 

The sun has long been a powerful personal symbol in my life.  My imagery is inspired by that natural force itself, as well as being influenced by a practice of yoga, meditation, and eastern studies.  Traditionally, the sun has been praised in numerous forms in eastern mythology as the source of light, nourishment, wisdom and clarity.  It was a natural direction to move in with my work, taking up the challenge of portraying this uplifting subject, and sharing my interpretation with others.
