Bridget March is an English painter who is well known for her colourful acrylic paintings and stunning watercolours.
She is also an etcher and has produced a small collection of etchings about her seven year discovery of Vietnam.
Bridget is a visual artist working in a range of traditional mediums. She makes original artwork and books for people who share her love of Vietnam whether they live here or are just visiting.
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.
Bridget March brings a fresh eye and perspective to Vietnam. She has a curious mind and because of this has been drawn to certain subjects that are often overlooked and has been able to capture the real essence of Vietnam.
'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'.
