Travels in Asia, images from Angkor Wat, inspirations from lantern festivals, Buddhist monasteries and temples' inspired "The Souls'Journey" series.
An artist's retreat in Eungella National Park, allowed the group to spend time in the rainforest and paint in the
afternoon.I experimented with stencils of leaves and palms.This resulted in "The Rainforest Series".
My husband and I spent time in S.A. and N.T. camping out in the National Parks in Chambers Gorge and O'Brien Springs. We travelled the Oonadatta track and visited Lake Eyre and the road to the Painted Desert. I collected the ochres from the ground and mixed them with binder medium to create paint. This was washed over wax medium to create a series of works on paper evocative of the region called "The Desert Series."
