"For my new solo show I have sourced inspiration from my favourite fairy stories. From exotic tales of Arabian princesses to the moralistic fables of the Grimm Brothers. I have alluded to various elements in these stories that help to develop and expand my compositions, rather than an actual literal interpretation. To create the mood I wanted, I have heightened my reds, and enriched my yellows and I have looked to Isnik ceramic decorative tiles to inspire my blues and greens. I have attempted to incorporate the atmosphere of deep, dark forests, full of contrasts of mystery and suspense, nurture and protection. Many of my patterns and decorative motifs are sourced from ancient Mogul art and design.
