Barbra Frankel lives on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Her textile work and design include spinning fiber, organic fiber dying, weaving, and embroidery paintings. The Dragonfly Triptych was done over a two-year period, between 2011-12 and took its inspiration from a visit by a dragonfly in Montana. As it alighted on a companions cuff for a minute I got a chance to see all its glorious beauty. A soul journey began!
