Over the past twenty years I have sometimes been invited to write about particular aspects of my artistic work. My desire to discover more about the artistic and pedagogic vision that underlies the Skinner Releasing Technique inspired me to interview Joan Skinner (1923-2021).

Writing has become an opportunity to reflect upon my experiences and to give my understanding of the work an additional voice to be shared.
