Artist / Author
The beginning of 2013 I had been granted a 3 week holiday whilst dancing at the Lido/Paris, so back to Australia I flew. This period wasn’t far from the beginning of Soul Stories transitioning from my notebook to becoming an actual product. I spent a lot of time checking out beautiful boutiques around Melbourne & Sydney when I came across the multi talented Shaun Tan.
I found his book ‘The Bird King’ and fell in love with his attention to detail and diverse style of art. Once I researched more about him, I was seriously inspired. His career has excelled in many directions & l was fortunate enough to view his 2014 exhibition on “The Lost Thing’ in Melbourne, ACME. If you have never heard of this book in particular, definitely check it out, along with his adapted Oscar®-winning short film…
I look forward to seeing more of his work in the near future, thank you Shaun.
