This piece features a dancing Tsuru or  Red-Crowned Crane, with a 24 ct Gold Leaf pattern in the background. It is from my Japanese Washi Paper Collection, made by collaging brightly coloured Japanese paper in the background, sealing it, and painting over it in oils.  It was inspired by my upbringing in Japan and my love for Japanese culture and aesthetics. A Tsuru symbolises health, wellbeing and longevity. Legend states that a Tsuru can live up to a thousand years.

Testimonies...  "I bought ‘Twilight Song’ for my daughter... She already has Esther’s kingfisher prints on her wall and ‘Twilight Song’ is a perfect edition to her collection. The tree branch and bird are beautifully detailed providing a lovely contrast against the abstract background making this piece very striking."- Ben H.

" 'Under the Silk Sky' has transformed our lounge. We never tire of its peaceful composition yet fascinating attention to detail." - Kyle A.
