‘I love writing. Love the flow that I get into when thoughts and keyboard become one and the stories seem to write themselves. I love to delve into and lose myself in the process – that is my favourite place to be. I am deeply fascinated by materials, quality and stories about people who make a difference. And I am fascinated with the capacity of ideas to take on physical form in a process driven by exceptional craftsmanship, wit and verve as manifestations that resonate with our senses.
I am deeply moved by the word and the capacity of text to serve as vehicles for works of art, design and craft to connect with receptive minds. As an academic, I have a certain affinity for the intellectual aspects of the field, but as a person, I am directly influenced by the mood an object transmits via its sensuous qualities, material character and the link between ideas and references.’
