90 x 90 cm, Acrylic, graphite, pastel
95 x 95 cm framed in white tray frame.
As each painting is created I have attempted to capture some of the feeling of being surrounded by the rainforest, the soft chanting of monks in cloisters, the golden roofs of temples adorned with prayer flags, waterlilies and golden koi carp, patterns and hand-woven silk scarves drying in the intense light, colours of indigo, ochre and fuchsia.

This relationship between the natural world and mankind, inspired by the culture of the east and west, has formed the basis of her work since returning to the UK in 2017.
