Going back 20 yrs just found this picture when I did 2 large commissions for Sheikh Ahmed's Royal Apartment in Dubai...complete with curly perm !! The pictures were so big the silk had to be sewn at the tailors and a frame was made especially so I could stretch the silk...once completed they were steamed in a large Arabic cooking pot on 4 rings on my oven because they wouldn't fit in my steamer..it took 2 weeks to draw and paint....they were then padded and framed. I felt very honoured to be asked.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
