I am an English painter who is well known for colourful acrylic paintings and watercolours.
Her collection of books, paintings, drawings and etchings are based on her seven year journey through Vietnam and the subjects that caught her eye along the way. She has been especially influenced by the national cultures, landscapes and history of this beautiful land.
'Part of the process of my work is to sit, observe, listen to and interact with the subject of my paintings. I don’t work from photographs. Even in the hottest sun and heaviest rain I will at least do a little sketch to commit my emotions to memory. Most of my drawings of Saigon are drawn on the street so I can feel the rush of traffic'.
Breathe in the ocean ; breathe out the mountain
