This is a portrait the seamstress, Laura Jean Balio, who's work is distinguished for its hand stitching. She is in her studio, bathed in mid-day sunlight while she mends antique furs. She is depicted wearing clothing she made, all fitting accoutrements for her portrait as a seamstress.

The sunlight illuminating the scene can stand as a metaphor, guiding the viewer to contemplate and refocus on the beauty of the 'slow arts'.
