Adi Mantra 2018. Ink & watercolour. Written in the Gurmukhi script are the words Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo. “I bow to the creative wisdom, I bow the the divine teacher within.” This mantra started to sing its energy to me in north England as I prepared to travel to India, continued as I travelled through Rishikesh, India and ended in Pokhara, Nepal, manifesting visually as this piece.

Goddess. 2017. Ink. At the first new moon after the spring equinox in India, a festival of nine nights celebrating the Divine Feminine energy is celebrated. I was staying in Rishikesh, listening to the devotional chants from the temples as I drew this.
