Mandalas 13 Images


I have always been fascinated by images within a circular design form, perhaps it is something to do with my textiles design training whereby we carried out exercises to create interesting fabric repeated patterns. A visit to Versailles palace instilled in me a love for baroque, stylized floral motifs and geometric forms, which were to be seen all over the decorative panels on doors, ceilings and furniture or furnishings. The powerful age of the sun king was so much in evidence- his personalize...

OCEANS OF OZ 18 Images


In this gallery I present to you a selection of new works inspired by my trip to Australia last year.

There is something so mysterious about them, as if they hold the secrets of the universe or some magical spirit which sends out magnetic vibes of life itself. The mere m...

Provence in summer 11 Images


Ann has not only a way of presenting a lovely painting but possesses the ability to reach into one's soul and awaken our senses, especially the unconscious love of beauty that lies within us. Her unique method of combining embroidered techniques on her water colours on paper took years of study and research. Ann's skill in bringing out the vividness and life-like quality of natural subjects in her water colour is enhanced by the richness of texture and movement of layers and layers of silk threa...
