B.M. Walden's Botanical Art Exhibition

 (My mum in the center with Dr. Hu and my dad)

My mother B.M. Walden is a botanical watercolourist. She is currently having a solo exhibition at The Chinese University in Hong Kong. Check out her paintings they are simply magnificent.

Hiking Hong Kong trails, stream beds and numerous hillsides was something I grew up doing with my family in search of  plants and flowers that we would bring home for mum to paint. Once she had painted all the Hong Kong Flora, my mother travelled to China, up to Yunan where she continued her search for plants to paint. 

My current Ceramic Sculpture series "Kitchen Gods" also draws upon this region and my fantastic upbringing in Hong Kong.
