Materials: Wool, cotton, small objects, hand embroidered and stitched

Image Statement: This series of woolen cloaks was made in recognition of the wisdom that women accumulate as they grow older, a deep and enduring wisdom, often unseen and unsung. I have sewn a primitive needle into each cloak to celebrate the generations of wise women who have gone before us, stitching paths of strength and beauty.
