Himani J Weir
Himani J Weir is a local artist and educator. Second generation Sri Lankan British, Himani specialises in storytelling through her illustration and ceramics.
"Storytelling has endured throughout my life, whether it was a Grimm's fairytale read at bedtime or a Jakata fable read to me from Buddhist text. When my mother recounted scenes from her life in Sri Lanka she spoke in a uniquely animated way. I memorised these stories, knowing one day I would do something with them."
