In her lecture “My Awakened Heart”, Judy will speak about her personal journey to self-awareness through her work with hand stitch and natural dyes. Her needle is her companion as she journeys towards her own inner softness. The world continues to come to grips with several crises in 2020, and all of us are stressed, fearful, and overwhelmed. In her October lecture, Judy will illustrate one of her strong beliefs: Making is Healing. Beginning with images from early March 2020, and moving through the spring and summer the artist will show how some of her projects developed and how through making them, she was helped through this emotional time of great change.
One of the pieces in the lecture is Judy’s quilt “Prayer to the Sky”, that has been accepted into “Quilt National 2021”, opening May 2021.
