Mount Vernon, NY

Artist and author, LM (Lisa Maria) B. Noudéhou currently divides her time between New York and Bénin, but grew up in México and the US, and has lived around the world. Her mother taught her to sew on her great-grandmother’s treadle machine, and her father, a photographer and linguist, passed on an artist’s eye and obsession with words. LM’s doctorate in literature at UPENN led her to teach writing and literature. As an author and textile artist, she uses image to ignite meditation, and hand-sewn appliqué and quilting to illustrate children’s picture books.
