My name is Siân Barlow. I am a book artist. I make books in different media, traditional and non-traditional. They are books which ask questions, leaving the answers open for their readers. They are books about how we are in the world, and about how we can be when we are at our best. They are about how we perceive and imagine, and about the joy, vulnerability and intensity of giving open attention to the world around us.

A book is an object which creates its own space and rhythm. It is also an object which can create a change. My work is an offering to you, to create a space in your life, an opening. You and I have much in common. We are here in this amazing, complex, painful and beautiful world, right now in this moment.
