and still maintain a normal life

and still maintain a normal life, wax batik on cotton, hand stitch on wool flannel, 2010 I've made many pieces over my long career that show though metaphor how we each have two sides. A side we present to the world and a much more interesting 'inside'. This piece, however, is an attempt to just show our inner world. That too is a duality.

This piece is about our time, and being in it. One half is slow, but it seems fast. It seems a whirl. When joined together, the two halves make a whirlwind.

Please visit the World of Threads Weekly Interviews on my side bar or click here to read and view my interview with Dawne Rudman and Gareth Bate. It's beautiful and I am very honoured to be included.

My life is a whirlwind right now.
