"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…" 
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.
