From the muddy depths the lotus rises up to shine as a thing of beauty. I see this growth reflected in today’s troubled times. We need to journey on a sustainably different path.  I see a new world arising, and  that it is magical.

My work is holistic and environmental: I distill black lotus ink from flowers collected from the temples. The brown washes I create derive from dried lotus pods. My crayon skies are created from natural beeswax formed  from petal ash. A hint of orange within the sunrise comes from shattered colonial roof tiles I collected after a severe storm in Battambang, Cambodia. The 24 karat gold I purchase from the artisan gold leaf makers in Mandalay, Myanmar or Burma. The glimmer of pure gold leaf I apply to these works  reaches through us to show us a new road.

The process of manually creating my colors takes time, but are produced with love and gratitude, and using classic time -worn techniques I have learnt through my myriad travels and life in SE Asia.
