Book of Job 3
Magnolia leaf fragments, twigs, salvaged
and handmade papers and hand stitching 

These fragile leaves, twigs, old letters, prescriptions, Bible pages and calendar sections speak of lifeís mutability and preciousness. I stitch their vanishing beauty onto layers of salvaged and handmade papers in an effort to hold on
to that which is essentially departing.  Yet, I neednít fear all the change and brokenness surrounding me, for Godís Spirit is always there in its midst. And, His word reminds me of His enduring love.
