She calls up the Sun card final 11 x 8-1

She Calls up the Sun presents a stirring meditation on the often disparate worlds of flesh and spirit, home and abroad, heartache and healing. Painted in darkly rich and warm hues, it is a tale of a “coastal woman” who in her search for faith and forgiveness uses both needle and thread to confront the ghosts of her past.
