In 2006, I was an artist in residence in Santa Fe for a period of two months. Inspired and mesmerised by the earthy landscape, the topography, the colour and light, I created this body of work.

Dyeing the canvas with natural dyes and by tearing, burning, stitching, collaging, painting as well as adding found objects I made these works that looked like scrolls or maps.

For the works on paper I stained and dyed the paper in earthy tones and again the kantha or running stitch, found objects and collage are integral to this body of work.
