I recently received a not very pleasant letter from my estranged father saying how I was expected to behave. This fuelled my desire to be my own person and to stand up for my needs and wishes. I wanted to say “This is Me”. Weaving was my chosen medium as I wanted it to be tactile and 3 dimensional rather than a flat canvas. As I worked on this piece, my feelings travelled from defiance towards my father into tenderness and love for myself. I finished this piece with care and I will hang it with love.
