Marks of St. Clare #3 Reliquary and Key
 
Paula Damm

Artist Paula Damm has forever had fiber in her fingers.  She is intrigued how making marks with needle and thread can be both art and poetry, contemplative and dangerous (think needles piercing flesh), and a way to envelop revered objects, thoughts, and words.  Paula lives in Cleveland Heights, Ohio and has worked as a school nurse in a high school for 21 years. Her work appears in NationalPoetryMonth.ca.
