We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

People say the setting sun marks the edge of the sky,

I look towards the edge of the sky, but cannot see my home.
Now I hate the blue mountain which parts us from each other,
The blue mountain still is covered by evening cloud

As the year draws to a close a feeling of melancholy permeates the air…winter’s cold sets in and a killing frost comes overnight…through the branches of the old apple tree the hills seem suspended in the milky sunset

A Chinese Brush Painting….Watercolour on Arches Not Paper

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    I love this one so much Janis……I had wanted to tell you that I REALLY wanted to do your piece in the last workshop. But I had not time at all for painting. I hate when I can’t paint. It just aches. But you are in the show and with several lovely translations. So glad to see.
    This has such a wonderful feel of chill, as if the grasses have deep frost and are reaching out to find the sun. Wonderful color amidst all that gray.

  • Thank you so much for this lovely compliment Elizabeth…I really appreciate it…
    I am happy for you to do a translation of my painting outside Sojie…let me know if and when you are up for that…
