I am thrilled to be starting an exciting new piece in my new studio. Commissioned by Maria, whose daughter Katie is in the Peace Corps, the piece will represent the important work that Katie is doing in Senegal (see Katie’s blog at http://kpinthepc.blogspot.com/).
The sketch below shows the concept for the piece. Streams of water flow out of the well Katie helped to build and images of her life there are connected by that water. The background fabric is a beautiful batik that was made in Africa and purchased there. Now that the sketch is complete, it’s time to get started with the sewing!
