The swirling atmospheric blues of the skies; raw rusts, reds, ochers and the minerals and metals found in the core of the earth were the inspiration for this Series, titled ‘Elements’.

The works on canvas have natural dyes and pigments to which I incorporated papier mache, found objects and metallic paints to give an added depth and dimention.

The works on paper are softer in tone, using natural dyes, metallic paint and collage. There is an excitement with the frayed edge, the imperfect and the incomplete.

The repetitive visual of the kantha or running stitch is an integral motif.
