I love it when I find "hidden" talent here. It's not so much that it doesn't exist, but not being from the island I am not as aware of all the breadth of talent that exists here as I might have been had I grown up here.

You can therefore imagine my surprise when I discovered that Dana Cooper, the author and illustrator of several well-known children's books which I have often seen in stores around town, is also a designer of some repute. The scarves and ties are pretty and etherial. I am not aware of them being sold on island although they feature many iconic local images and colours.
