PASSAGES & PORTALS: A WOMAN’S JOURNEY – Handmade book, crown binding so that book opens fully into a “star”. Watercolor pages, rice paper flowers, German Dresden decorations.
Each woman holds a banner stating “I am” under a portal of “Nurturing”, “Creative”, “Beautiful”, “Strong”, etc. On the final page, the woman holds a banner that says “I am enough”. As a woman of a “certain age”, I look back over the course of my life & realize that I thought I was never enough. Never thin enough, never pretty enough, never good enough, never, never. Now I realize that in fact, I always was enough in every stage of my life. If only I had known. We are enough. We always were.
This book will be a San Diego Book Arts exhibit in the “Cherchez La Femme – Look for the Woman” exhibit at the Women’s Museaum, Liberty Station in San Diego, California from October 1 – November 1, 2015.
