The Goddess Suite

 

This series began in the early 80's when I was finishing my college coursework at the University of Minnesota, including  a course called "Woman - A Sense of Identity." The women's liberation movement was in full throttle at the time; I was not to be left behind.

 

I chose to demonstrate my batik painting process for the class and found the goddess theme well liked by all. I have batiked this woman whom I have since named 'Harmony' numerous times in many colors and diverse  backgrounds.
