My work is holistic and environmental: I distill black lotus ink donations to 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 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.
