Back in January I took the biggest trip of my life – and it began with a rendezvous with my girl in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We travelled up from KL to Ipoh and then right up to Penang in the North and so we saw the culture, architecture, food and arts change from Islamic influenced to Chinese.

Batik is an art form highly prized as Malaysian as it was a Malaysian artist who first fostered batik as a Fine Art.


There is also a fascinating mix of religions and temples from the brightly coloured festival of Thaipusam at the Batu Caves (top)

to Thai Buddhist temples and  Burmese Buddhist temples with different emphasis on decoration styles.

It was my first time travelling widely in Asia and I was in heaven with the all the pattern and colour.

As a new cultural experience (never been in temples before) everything looked fresh and interesting and I have stacks of inspiration for paintings and patterns.
