Himalayas Revisited
Nepal: it creeps up on you unexpectedly like an addiction and seeps into your bones staying there forever and so becomes part of you. Which is why I have created this body of work depicting the Himalayas.
From 1981- 83 I worked in Nepal as a volunteer with my husband David. We spent considerable time in remote districts on sanitation schemes.
I kept a written record of this time as well as photographs and sketches which I used as source material for many paintings of the Himalayas and the Buddhist architecture.
Having supported the charity, Community Action Nepal, I was invited to exhibit at their Mountain Arts Festival in Cumbria, this led to the opportunity to revisit Nepal in April 2017. Trekking in a remote region and then s pending over a week by myself in a small mountain village was the highlight of my trip. I was able to sketch and paint and have used these close observations of the mountains to develop paintings in different ways.

Last year I went on the Everest Base Camp trek as a marshal on the Original Everest Marathon. I spent some time at Kyangjuma and Tengboche where I was able to do plenty of painting and sketching- all ready for this year's calendar!

We are looking forward to visiting Nepal again as soon as we are able!
