I have chosen to create a series of woven rugs and handwoven panels which reflect a personal vision. I choose to think metaphysically about the world I live in and about the objects that surround me. Life represents a spiritual journey in which each of us is involved. The Bible says that, "Many are called, but few are chosen." However, I tend to agree more with the following statement: "We all are called and we are all chosen if we simply have the courage to step into the unknown." Many things could cause a person to begin an internal evaluation of the human spirit. For me the process of self-realization was initiated by great pain and loss of hope. My awareness of the human spirit's capability of positive change and growth allowed me to develop a clearer understanding of the person within. I have approached this thesis as an opportunity to share my insights with others.
