Ilustrations of Haitian spirit flags from Spirits in Sequin: Vodou Flags of Haiti

This book was my inspiration for my valentine card from my previous blog entry.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the beautiful sequined and beaded flags of Haiti. The illustrations above are all spiritual flags of the Vodou religion with Haitian symbols of their Gods and beliefs.

However, there are artists who create sequin and beaded pieces that do not refer to the Haitian religion and these works of art are called art flags.

After reading Nancy’s book-my first trials experimenting with sequins

For those of you who would like to try creating art flags inspired by “Spirits in Sequins”- the Dollar store has some great selections of sequins in some beautiful colors. My first pieces were sewn on white cotton fabric, and now I sew on different colored felts and add embroidery stitches.

Hello, February 2022

My latest embroideries are inspired by the Haitian art flags of dazzling colors and shining sequins.

Harmony from the Heart Sutra

My first piece was a mandala from the heart sutra and that led naturally to the heart for Valentine’s Day
