Meet Lani Gerity Glanville

Lani Gerity Glanville is a Nova Scotian Art Doll-maker, author, and world traveler. Her passions have led her to search out non-traditional ways to combine her travels with words and images. Art Dolls and stories are where she is currently focusing her creative skills, in her fisherman's cottage by the sea. Aside from Art Doll making and writing, one of the most satisfying activities that Lani engages in is teaching; from intergenerational puppet-making workshops for grandparents and grandchildren, to multicultural puppet-making workshops in the U.S. and Canada.

"There is a door we all want to walk through, and writing (and art) can help you find it and open it. Writing can give you what having a baby can give you: it can get you to start paying attention, can help you soften, can wake you up." -Anne Lamott "Bird By Bird"

Here's what I've worked on today, arranging this Madonna and Child in a niche in the scriptorium. I'm going try and draw it into my own book of hours. (My teachers are very kind. They say it's all right to use the scrap vellum to create my own book of hours)
