“Sarah’s Mud Cloth” was inspired by the traditional mud cloth made by the people of Mali. This was my first woodblock, and the first block I had carved since my youngest daughter’s birth. I was so nervous that I would make a mistake. But with each push and scrape with my tools, I carved away the pain, fear, doubt, depression, and anxiety. When I look at the piece now, I tear up because all those emotions are there. Each square/rectangle is an emotion quilted and framed together. – Sarah Matthews
