A peak into my book, The Chuña. I am writing and illustrating picture books that portray animals in their natural habitat. Through these stories I want to encourage children and their parents to explore and observe nature. Being close to nature can remind us that we are part of it, not just looking at it from a distance.
Here is the book cover I illustrated for Dutch author and Intercultural Management Consultant, Eleonore Breukel. “Achter de glimlach van de Sri Lankaan”, translates to, “Behind the Smile of the Sri Lankan”.
The book is compiled of stories about her experiences in Sri Lanka while giving insight into the culture, history, and geopolitics of the island. Eleonore wanted the cover to capture Sri Lanka’s beautiful and exotic nature, the four predominant religions, and the island’s continuing modernity.
The book will be out in soft cover print this month. Already a digital version available.
Only available in Dutch , so far.
S E A S O N S , is a four piece series of stained glass suncatchers representing the four seasons. This week I installed the series at an organic bakery, Mas Corcó Pagesos Forners, in Manlleu, Catalonia. Here they grow their own wheat and make artisanal bread using a wood fired oven. Delicious and beautiful to see! The bread was being prepared while I was doing the installation so I don’t have any photos of their bread. You can see in the photos the “chameleon-like” characteristics of stained glass when the background changes. This also occurs as the sun moves and we shift from daylight to artificial light.
This is a logo I made for my husband’s organic mushroom operation here in Catalonia.
