The storytellers of Africa speak, not that we shall listen,
         but that we shall remember


But how do we remember ...

in a world that has forgotten so much ?

"It could be said that it is the sculptures which give the Storylines a physical form, the tangible presence of a touchstone,but in fact it is the sculptures themselves which are the signposts, guiding the thought-journeys in search of what it means to be human in these challenging but exciting times, and the quest for meaning, joy and relevance in our individual lives".

“We are born without any answers, and will spend our lifetimes in search of who we are and how we fit into this magnificent and mysterious world. I firmly believe that it is a life purpose of each of us to share what our lives have revealed to us, the gifts and insights gained along our life-journeys of discovery, and made into humble offerings so that they might be of value to others as they navigate the trails of their own unfolding lives. This is a touchstone of our common humanity.“


The Storylines – those unfolding pathways that cross the landscapes of our lives, invisible journeys in search of who we are, so that we can return to gentleness in a world of belonging.
