Janet O. Hagberg
An icon is like a window to God. It can be an image or a story that draws you in by its beauty, design or meaning, and then points you to the Eternal. Icons are art and prayer. Using image, fabric and handquilting, these icons tell the stories of women of the Bible, members of Hagberg’s imaginary “Red Sea Band.” Reflection questions allow the viewer to make personal connections with the women.
Janet O. Hagberg is an author, spiritual director, healer—and now an iconographer who specializes in contemporary quilted icons. Icons are not in her religious tradition but God has a great sense of humor and dropped them into her lap to help her embrace art and prayer in a different way. Learn more at www.janethagberg.com
