The Gathering 2017-19

I dream of a world where love is the answer
This collaborative project gathers together a worldwide circle of women and two good men joining hearts and hands for mending our beautiful broken world. It began with the gift of an old wedding dress which I cut up into 45 pennants and made a call out for anyone interested in stitching their hopes and dreams on June 30th, 2017. The pennants were all spoken for by the next day, for those who missed out I made a call for making small talismans of love and protection for our world.
Making art as an act of reverence, a magic spell cast into the world to heal the divisions, mend the desecration and bind the world with love and respect that speaks of connection, communicating a sense of how we belong to our planet, that each person has value, that each moment of reaching out has potential. Collectively we are shining a beacon for understanding, love and compassion to be released at the exhibition of
“I dream of a world where love is the answer ”
