Salor de Uyuni, the incredable salt plains of Bolivia.

My artwork is incuded in the Exhibition of Creative Women and the Art of the Comics. This unique exhibition of Women cartoon artwork is travelling throughout South America, Spain and the USA. The exhibition includes panel discussions by women artist on the subject of their work and what they bring to the artform.

Cheeky lot painted my caricature of Alanis Morrisette on the gallery wall as an introduction to my workshops. I made it clear that this is NOT a picture of me!

The opening of the festival at the Museo Tambo Quirquincho in la Paz

La Paz sits in a huge canyon at 3660 metres above sea level. From every angle the city crawls up the sides of he canyon to the Altoplato above.

The colour and drama of La Paz festivals.
