The artist completed one heart to represent each week for a year. She also made brief written notes of key events in each week. It is anticipated that a copy of this be displayed with the work it relates to. To invite you to wander in to the artist's life, the works will be suspended around the space at about viewing height. The two larger pieces 'Head' and 'Heart" will face each other across the room. They are printed and then embroidered with the artists hair.
