To Market, To Market!




​To market, to market to buy a fat pig! These elegant ladies dressed in brightly hued wax prints are on their way to do a spot of shopping with children in tow. Even to the market they dress like queens! The ground is a vibrant cyan patterned with translucent yellow pattern. The sky mysteriously glows with shades of blue, yellow & soft lavender. Inspired by the beauty witnessed in my travels to Africa.

A Boy & His Dog


A boy & his precious companion are navigating the sea-foam green waters of the Mediterranean on a beautiful summer's day. The water is teeming with jewel-like multicoloured schools of fish in cyans, lime greens & pinks. The sky is a turquoise blue that melts upwards into a deep emerald.

A Glittering Moment



Without knowing at the time, I'd be giving birth to my baby boy the night after I completed this painting: A mother & child contemplate a multicoloured dusk as a nearby peacock peacefully perches on top of a little glowing temple. The azure ground is illuminated with little intricate dotted gold leaves, giving the illusion of movement as it catches the light at different times of day...

This painting is available for sale SOLD.

An Ideal Friendship




On this first day of Spring she takes a stroll & stumbles upon a winged companion, who doesn't seem to mind her company one bit.

The Bloom

















He presents her with a single lotus-flower bloom to symbolize his pure intentions...Her dress is inspired by the exquisite courtesan dresses of the Mughal empire, with intricate gold detailing depicted in their illuminated miniature manuscripts. The ground is alive with detailed flowers and a vivid menagerie including peacocks, lions, elephants, horses & parrots. This pattern was greatly inspired by the colourful textiles of Gujarat, India.
