Welcome to the interwoven world of Lois Gaylord, where everything is connected. Her deep connection to Spirit and “fiber-brained” ideas have brought her to avodat ha’lev, the work of her heart. Lois weaves these two passions into her ceremonial cloths. And through her works of art, she explores the connections between our daily lives and Spirit.
