Wild Woman is Feeling Inspired


In creating this piece I was thinking and journaling about being rooted, connected to the earth and also reaching for the heavens. The words from my journal that are around the edges on the back of the mat are “Open, inspired, reaching for the sky … Rooted, stable. Grounded, connecting to the earth … Opening our crown to the Universe.”

I imagined this Wild Woman as a tree, with her roots deep in the layers of the earth, her dress and body like the trunk of the tree and her hair as branches reaching for the sky. The layers of her life are represented by the horizontal stripes. Her trunk is primarily my hand spun yarn, spun from curly locks. Her hands, feet and face are wet felted.

Mixed media (rug hooking and wet felting) on linen. 19.5″ x 38.5″
