The Art of Christine Earhart

Lima, Peru 1982-1983

Lima is a special place for me since it is my birthplace.  My father worked for one of the tire companies and I grew up moving all over the world.  This time with my family we lived in the hills outside of Lima in an area known La Molina.  Lima only gets two inches of rain a year so the hills are completely tan, no vegetation, and looks like the moon.  We had an old farm house with a pool, a place for many get togethers with friends and my husband’s softball team.  Photos are of Machu Pichu (a trip we wouldn’t miss), native women, fabric, and a llama.  The “tumi” is done in free motion quilting and is a common Peruvian symbol of a sacrificial, ceremonial knife used by the Incans.
