A Prayer Hanging is a personal banner created with a specific intention, declaring a hope, a dream, or a concern.  My hangings are pieces of cloth decorated with stitching, dye, paint, applique, text and/or collage.  Hung in a doorway, outdoors, or on the wall, they are  visual, tangible expressions of an idea or wish that will hopefully permeate the space and spread beyond.

Yellow ‘flower’ done with shibori stitching on goldenrod dyed raw silk and then dyed in yellow onion skins, framed with same silk dyed in black bean juice.
