What's been your favourite place to visit so far?
India has made a deep impression on me and on the way I work. It is so stimulating in every way: noise, colour, the intensity of everything, smell, taste, life. I learnt about colour from India and I really learnt to love colour. There is so much life to see and draw in India, and those beautiful cows!
I’ve visited India several times and am planning more trips. It’s a difficult place to depict because everything is in a hyper state, like someone has turned up all the dials. I’ve never seen such colour and such vivaciousness anywhere else, and so much chaos! I took a break and went into Nepal and it felt so calm and serene but when I returned to India, right at the border it was crazy again. I felt I had come home. Once you start it draw and get to grips with the energy in India and you make it your own it becomes a joy.
