For the past few years, I've been experimenting with collage, printing and creating my own papers. The resulting works have an embroidered, tapestry-like texture and appearance. In these new pieces, the canvas becomes a plane of "windows" inviting the viewer into facets of the subject, the nuances of its colours, textures ... even its fragrance.

In addition, this mixed media method is opening new doors for expressing spiritual and inspirational themes. In Tibetan Prayers, for example, I have used Tibetan prayer flags that have hung for years in our gum tree. The wind, sun and rain have contributed something very special to the final work.
