'‘Womb Quilt’'

The many faces of Black womanhood are represented in this canvas/paper quilt, and there is a concurrent spirit flowing through them. The continuous red thread that ties each image together symbolizes the common ancestry, life experiences, and strength that unites Black women. The newspaper clippings on each portrait refer to those aspects of the collective experiences of Black women that haunt our lives, such as sexual abuse, and discrimination. The cowry shells are an ancient African symbol of fertility and abundance. The central image is a rendition of a womb, emphasizing the power of womanhood and cycles of life that unite women.
