with Guy Béart's Les couleurs du temps, The Colors of Time. Another illustration for my Sixty Songs project.
Here's my own adaptation of a popular German children's song and game. The original is quite bloodthirsty (the poor horseman doesn't fare too well since he gets eaten first by crows and then by snails). My message here: we're all friends if we treat each other with respect.
When I take a break from painting (and from teaching!), I grab my iPad and have some fun with digital collages. Here are two from my series illustrating songs I plan to learn by the time I turn sixty. I better hurry ... (:
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.
