A Culmination of Cultures

Here are a selection of pictures I took on a recent visit to India. When I design print & pattern here in the UK, I like to look at the elements of nature at work, for example light, texture, shadows and reflection. The photos below however, confirm that my bright colour palette is inherited from the motherland!

Edge of the Meadow makes sense of two very different cultures working together in harmony.

Hello Autumn

Autumn is one of my favourite times of year. After a long summer of never ending green the elements start to change rapidly in a short space of time. Clear air, and intense light, bring out striking contrasts and we can enjoy deep shades of reds, orange and yellow.

Contrast and glow.

Beautiful objects fall to the ground, not forgotten and happy to be found!
