A month ago I found a large canvas sitting on a street corner. It was covered in black paint so thick I hesitated, wondering how much the texture would limit what I could do with it. In the end I paid homage to my neighborhood, a vibrant kaleidoscope of cultures that to me seems full of possibility. In the center, the affectionately called “warm brothers”, the chimneys of the local power station that every night, like a castle in a psychedelic fairy tale, glow purple and red until the clock strikes midnight.
A little about myself:
Hello there and thank you for visiting my website! I have lived in Spain, Mexico, France and the United States, but now make my home in Germany. I have a Ph.D. in Literary Studies and a Master's in TESOL, and have published several books for children, among them El Loro Tico Tango and El Fandango de Lola, a 2012 Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book. As a writer and an artist I'm in constant conversation with my own anxious mind even as I celebrate the joyful possibilities of our crazy, incomprehensible world.
