I love the textures of fabrics, adore silk dyes, and am amazed by the way silk and dye communicate with each other. But I work with textiles most of the time, and find that sometimes I do miss painting with watercolors… Recently, I started to play with this amazing medium again! While it is taking time to get a feel for it, I’m proud of myself for coming back to this medium and developing my skills.

Recently I bought a field easel for plein air painting.
Watercolor in the outdoors is exciting and refreshing, even if it’s just a quick trip to the local park. It is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and opening yourself up to an outside world. I promised myself to find a way to be creative even during the busiest times of the year, so this has become my source of sponaneous inspiration.

Summer memories from my recent travels were captured in the watercolors below. Some are from overseas, while others are not so far from my home 🙂
