ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My books aim to stimulate children’s talent. How? By encouraging the kind of creative thinking that enables children to find solutions. By stimulating the learning of language as a vehicle for communication with others and reflection within oneself. By creating stories with tenderness and imagination, and at the same time, stories that deal with real life issues that are of concern to children. I look to nature for inspiration, and seek to create book contents to contribute to our love and respect for this magnificent planet we share.
