I recently participated in the 2016 New City Artist Exchange. My contribution to the exchange was an edition of 14 hand-sewn pages called “St. Leoba: Words and Deeds.”
The inspiration for this series came from St. Leoba, an Anglo-Saxon nun that I learned about during my research in Ireland. Leoba had a dream that she pulled an endless purple thread from her mouth. She desperately pulled at the thread and soon it completely filled her hands. She asked a wise woman to interpret her dream, and the woman said that the dream was a prophecy: Leoba would share wisdom and love with the world through her words and deeds.
