Out Now! Make/Manifest: A Life in Art and Craft
For 2021, I am delighted to share my new book on living a creative life: Make/Manifest. I interviewed 23 award-winning artists and creators who share the insights they have gained through long-term relationships with their craft, discussing their medium, their relationship with their audience, and their approaches to creative and professional sustainability. These unique profiles offer the reader inspiration and illumination that will help them reflect on, deepen and refresh their craft.
Featuring interviews with Kari Barba, Formica Coriandolo, Mike Hall, David Hurn, Corin Johnson, Claudia Kappenberg, Muazzam Ali Khan, Reuben Langdon, Peter Lord, Rama Mani, Miguel Mendonça, Maggie Murphy, Charlotte Mary Pack, Lee Pepper, Lady Pink, Stan Prokopenko, Herman Rarebell, Red Means Recording, Josh Scott, Matthew Shewchuk, Dave Smith, Kazuaki Tanahashi and Eda Elif Tibet. With a foreword by Chipo Chung.
I am an Anglo-Azorean writer based in Bristol, England.
My first career was in forestry, horticulture and landscaping.
I then studied and worked in the sustainability field for a decade, as an author and campaigner on renewable energy.
Following that work I began to research a wide range of topics, including consciousness, spirituality, ET contact, cults, wisdom, art and creativity.
