How I See It

Can I have three minutes of your life 
to share mine with you?

Oldest of five
Mother of three
Youve heard it before
I wont be a bore

 Ive stitched and Ive sewed
Played with clay on most days
Fiddled with fiber
Tried stuff in new ways

  Wandered with weaving
Fumbled with felting
Now takes up my day
Windows are an integral part of my work
Windows open and close
They let air in and out
They reflect an image behind the image
They distort - but they often clarify - crystal clear
Working with these images - exploring them for the past thirty some years -
This grid has become a personal agenda

 A journey with images and photographs
Theyre the basis of my recent collage work
Computer images also play an important part

Written words add another dimension - a challenge
BUT recycled tea bags are a big part of the trip

Ive brought in a sampling, so enjoy
Reflect and ask questions

At the end of the day
Ive struggled with rhythm
Thanks for listening - along with your time
Without it all, just where would I be?
Without it all, who would I be?


WHEW!   Its still under three
