Jon Foster's book collab was waiting for me when I arrived!
Jon Foster posted an 'invite' somewhere (IUOMA?) asking if anyone wanted to take part in a book collab. Needless to say, I said yes. I had no idea what Jon had in mind, but that's the way it usually is and the serendipity is what I like anyway. Imagine my delight when this haptic, open-ended beauty of an altered board book was waiting for me in Maine when I returned. For me, the book has a Mad Men feel, it evokes a time in the past when things were different. I will have to sit on it for a bit to make sure I do it justice! I am excited, though.
I'm an artist-educator who uses imagery in all that I do, from painting, drawing, print-making and mail art to reflective journals around action research in schools. I believe in creating learning environments that are democratic, and collaborative where we are honest, open and caring.
