Wild Woman’s Work is Play is one of my Wild Woman series. “Work has ease & flow. Energizing.” Over the past several years I’ve been working on infusing my life, including my work with a sense of play. Rug hooking with recycled, commercial, hand spun and hand dyed yarns and fabrics on linen. 18.5” x 26” $1200
My Wild Woman mats are a departure from my healing mats in that they are not abstract in design. Each Wild Woman mat incorporates all of the eight Chakra colours. Having all eight colours feels like the woman in the mat is in alignment with her body and soul. She has clear, flowing, energy.
These mats are playful. I find them heart lifting to design and hook, so will choose to do them when I need a little bit more lightness in my life. And yes, they are somewhat autobiographical.
Being a Wild Woman is feeling free to express yourself, to have fun. It means being true to yourself. There is also an element of nature and wildness, like being moved by the earth’s rhythms. When I am feeling like a Wild Woman I feel taller, more powerful, unstoppable.
A Wild Woman feels free – to be part of the sisterhood, to be herself, to dance, to move freely and to say what is in her heart. A Wild Woman knows what she needs and gives herself permission to go for it, to accept it. She is wild from a place of inner joy, but also from inner anger and righteousness.
