Oil on canvas The "Bazaar" series was inspired by my love of perusing through bazaars and open air markets and sampling local dishes and sweets for the first time.
Having lived in Singapore for 3 years, my family and I were able to visit neighboring countries such as Malaysia, Cambodia and Indonesia. There, the aromas of incense and curry will lead you to these markets where you can lose yourself in a maze of baskets, wood carvings and handwoven fabrics in gorgeous earth tones.
