Today I realized I had lost me credit card...or shall I say misplaced? My mind does not seem to be making a connection with reality.
The fragility of the Iris blossom reflects in its delicate veins of color...that is how thin I am feeling my heart is these days... the tears and numbness floods in and out of my consciousness.
There is promise in this tender blossom with future kisses of the Iris new blooms.
Hot and hazy mornings turn to a steamy afternoon. The gentleness of the breezes caress the humid moisture on my skin and ease the moments of loss.
"Every gesture is an act of Creation." Each expression of kindness touches my heart ...no matter how small this quiet expression...the healing creates a Light in the cracks in my heart's spirit. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
I am an artist who makes her marks with a needle and thread. My visual journals give birth to my quilts and are the evidence of my existence. The dialogue between the viewer and the art allows me to integrate my historical, present, future voices, thus communicating with all generations. It is my purpose in the making of my art to guide one to discover a self-actualization of the human spirit--an ongoing conversation between the artist and the viewer. I cherish my freedom to speak through my dyed fabrics, beads, embellishments, and found objects. This visual fiber text has helped me discover a serene appreciation for my own being and often calms my spiritual soul in today's chaotic stream of life.
Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart has been making her works of art for more than 25 years. She has traveled and shown her work in Australia, Mexico, New Zealand, France (Paris), England (London), Italy, and Greece as well as throughout the United States.
