Endurance is a body of work highlighting the strength and endurance of the human spirit. This is a spiritual collection displaying inner strength. The eyes are a window to the soul. I wanted to imprint on paper the humble spirituality reflected in the faces of these chosen people I met. They all convey a strong sense of beauty, freedom and spirit. These are all multi media artworks and are a mix of photography and hand painting. Textures and patterns of cultural fabrics have always intrigued me and have been used in the artworks. White is the predominant colour in all the artworks giving them a clean, pure and spiritual presence.
