Western Province

Photo illustrations, the artist believes are an appropriate medium to create the smooth transition from reality to imagination. This is also the basis behind the guardian of Adams peak. Every time the artist climbs Adam's Peak she imagines in the setting of myths and legends. Watching the sunrise each time she cannot help but imagine the thin white clouds as dragons in the misty golden splendour. The dragon is inspired by and is a combination of various feature of The Dragon form seen in Buddhist architecture and the lions of ancient Sri Lankan swords.
