Learning To See In The Dark
I am so proud of this book. It comes out of months of therapy work with my dear friend Anushe, about my time as a young girl, having my bedroom in the basement, and the nightmares, sleep paralysis and other fears I experienced. It always amazes me how much of what we experience as children affect us as adults, especially the things we don’t realize have marked us.
The story itself is framed like a fairytale, and again is so personal to me that it’s not ever meant to go out into the world.
I so loved the physical process of creating the book: painting the illustrations, printing out the text, and then sewing all the individual pieces into signatures and then binding them into a hardcover book. I lost myself in hours of meditative work, being deep in the flow. There is nothing better.
