The African Rhythms Series – including My African Ancestors – have been inspired by watching and working with the women of Malawi, Africa.
These art-works reflect both the grace, humour and rhythms of her daily life: using a mixed media of materials – including collage, hand-made paper, linen thread, charcoal, ink, water-colour and fabric – these images seek to express some of these qualities of Malawian women.”
