St. Jude, 2005, Handworked embell. textile assemblage,
20 x 12″

As stated previously, the origins for this work are in Baltimore, MD, at the Shrine of St. Jude. I visited in March 2005. However, doing a piece about St. Jude, the saint of lost or hopeless causes, was appropriate for my first altar, as that is the saint my mother continues to pray as a means to intervene on my behalf.  This piece won Best in Show in the Visions XI exhibition, an international juried show of contemporary religious art, and is in the collection of Libby Barnes, of Nicholasville, Kentucky.
