About Alana

The Author

E. Alana James

E. Alana James

Dr E Alana James is reinventing herself again! Coming full circle to the first love of her life - art - and bringing back to her images all the lessons of her life as author, researcher, academic and wife. Concerned mostly with the idea of images as vehicles for expression of the truth of our inner and outer life experience.

What a title to live up to!

About Alana – what are the key elements you should know in order to move our relationship to a higher level?

I am driven – always have been, by whatever seems to be the next good thing I can do, something that is within my sphere but would look like a big stretch to others.  Sometimes these tasks take a few years – like the Zappa Quilt or MastersNet and Doctoral Net which I now have six years in and no end in site.


Other than that:

  • I like to talk about serious subjects – what drives you – what drives the world – human psychology and how the brain works
  • I go to church here in Kinsale for the community but would really say I am nontheistic, because of yoga and meditation I enjoy the wholeness of the world and its peoples
  • I have learned that the value in life is in others – so if you are willing to engage with me I am happy to share and engage back with you.

Any you?  What would you write on an “About me” page?
