Where is home?
Running barefoot on a long, white-sand beach with the waves breaking over my feet

Why book arts?
A good story collapses time, and weaves together fragmented voices with contemporary images that fire the imagination and evoke strong feelings.

Book art adds that exciting dimension to storytelling for me, and allows me to combine language and emotion with texture and structure

Materials ?
Bark, handmade papers, silk, sand, shells, beads, wire and liquid light

Inspiration?
Memories, myths, imagination and language – many of my books are influenced by my childhood in Africa, the spiritual voices that pull us back to the landscape and the magical art of storytelling.
