When I was in Kenya Sabra sent me a card of Christo's wrapping of Manhattan - one of my islands. A paint sample colour took me to Christo. The word castaway made me hear the theme tune from Gilligan's island. Did you know they only ran for three seasons? It felt like my whole childhood. As a teen Patrick Denver came to Cranberry Island, my real island, for the summer. Patrick was John Denver's son. John Denver was Gilligan. We had Gilligan junior on our island.
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.
