SoulCollage is an expressive art process in which you construct unique, soul-tending cards. Years before I even dreamed of becoming a visual artist, I created this card to embody my longing to be more creative.

The sad stone woman represented the programmed good girl whose creativity was hidden under her skirts. She parroted the same old story over and over, though wishing to leave Melancholy's "sovran shrine" and "burst Joy's grape" (see Keats' Ode to Melancholy).

From the rose of creation through the bones of feminine wisdom, the soul released her spirit, which forced open the stone woman's restraining skirts.
