In fact she’s taken to photographing them too. Here, you’ll find two of her photos among mine. Both the girls and I are in good company indeed! Read More

I just ordered two accordion notebooks and am so excited to create my storybook drawings in one of them. I was inspired to use this format after I visited the Etel Adnan exhibition at the Mathaf Museum in Doha last spring.
