During a recent trip to Hawai’i (2014) I began a series of collages. Since I have a need to be engaged in something meaningful when travelling, I decided that collages would be easy to transport and work on.
Before embarking on my trips, I made a small portfolio which fit into the bottom of my suitcase and then packed paper, painted Lotuses, coloured pencils, scissors and glue.
In each piece, I cut out Lotuses and added pencil and coloured pencil drawing. In Hawai’i I finished 4 collages and 7 more, during a later trip to Thailand (2015). Prior to my trips, I painted over 100 Lotuses.
I have recently returned from my trip to India (2016), where I completed 5 new collages.
