ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I have a passion for the curiously beautiful.


    In my stories for children, I want to offer glimpses of people doing spectacular things – regardless of their gender or skin colour or what the world around them may have taught them so far. I want to offer the stories I wish I had growing up and ones I am searching for to read to my own children.

    These stories are long overdue.
