I have a particular afffinity to Latin American culture - I adore woven textiles and all kinds of ceramics. My latest kick has been Oaxacan wood carvings and Mata Ortiz pottery. I'm also fascinated by how Latin American and African artists have influenced each other.
I've worked in international development for many years. While many things divide peoples, the arts often are a bridge - music, painting, dance. I love all these things.
