I made this set of vestments for an exhibition sponsored by Breast Cancer Awareness Tasmania, honoring women who have made a difference in our life. Her Habit was made with love for Ann Smith, aka Sister Jane, my 6th grade teacher at St. Johns School in Bangor, ME, US. She gave me unconditional love, total acceptance and embraced my wild spirit. After losing touch in the 1980's, we reconnected in 2012 and remain close to this day.
