Artist of the beauty of the world

"Since the Great Work of the universe can only be completed by each one, the cosmic and divine Artist invites each in turn to become a true artist of the beauty of the world…" [1]

For me, embroidery is my response to this gentle invitation. The pieces I make, stitch by stitch, allow me to tap into this potential given and received as a gift and thus perpetuate an art of living exemplified by

two types of embroidery: black embroidery (balcony embroidery) and boutis (the flower).

As consecrated secular, embroidery is my way of living my mission by contributing to the beauty of the world. Denise G.
