Hello my name is Stella Sloan, I am a grateful participant at BIST. My artwork is called, ‘The Joy of Swinging.’
It includes a variety of manmade textiles and sticks, pine ones and mica from the great outdoors. My desire is to depict the great Canadian outdoors and the freedom felt when swinging (mica from Halliburton is the swing seat).
Swinging, like rocking a baby, is known to regulate and calm the person.
