Rachel Rickard, Walking in Love Artist

When Rachel and Jacob moved to Hyampom last summer with their baby Alora we met outside the post office. The post office is the one place where everyone in town is bound to come sooner or later since we have no mail delivery to homes. It wasn't long before Rachel and my daughter Sydney became friends. Not too much later they both made their first quilt projects, panels for the Walking in Love Installation.

Rachel is gentle, deep, humorous and a homesteader in the making. She takes on many different aspects of gardening, preserving foods and holistic health. Their home is filled with music and friends.

This is my first fiber arts experience! My vision for this project was to capture the lightness and beauty of love. My quest led me to creating a 3 part mixed art piece. My inspiration, being a mother to my baby daughter Alora, who radiates pure love and joy from every fiber of her being! This project opened me up to the depths of a mothers love, as a mother but also as a child of the miraculously bountiful earth!"

  1. Rachel,

    What an absolutely BEAUTIFUL Fiber Art piece you created for this utterly moving display of LOVE that is being exhibited nationally.

    You literally glow and radiate with the PURE ESSENCE of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE you have for sweet little Adorable Alora that MOTHERHOOD intuitively places DEEP within our ever expanding HEARTS, to be expressed and shared with others.

    WHAT A PERFECT VENUE FOR YOU, MY CREATIVE CHILD, ALONG YOUR ENLIGHTEN PATH...Good Work Honey!!!

    Much Love, Mom
