Piece and comfort for the eyes, heart, and soul.


A Cherrywood Hand-Dyed Fabrics 2023 Monarch – Caterpillar Collection Finalist

As one who is a new creation in Christ, I love the example of the caterpillar and the butterfly! Their complete transformation illustrates the concept that it is possible to die to one’s old self and live again as a completely new and beautiful creation.
In Reborn, I adapted slightly Richard Bach’s quote about the caterpillar and butterfly, and surrounded my monarch caterpillar and butterfly with lots of the milkweed leaves and flowers that are necessary to sustain them.

Hope is found in:
Genesis 1:1
“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”

Techniques used: raw edge fused, hand & machine appliqued, machine and both wool & Aurifil (50wt) hand embroidered, Pigma inked, Derwent Inktense painted, thread painted, and longarm free motion/hand guided quilting.
