The inspiration began with our incredible three month motorhome road trip from Florida across the southern states to Big Sur south of San Francisco. As I logged 10,000 kilometers behind the wheel Mayke clicked well over a thousand photos on her Ipad. We never made it to SF, captured by the beauty of Big Sur and the Carmel area our imaginations were saturated with image overload. Once back to our mountain refuge Mayke retreated to her studio where she was pinned to a wall, her “railroad” as Bruno calls it, sketches, images and stories that would soon be put to canvas. Below is part of her railroad, you will find a carousel of this year’s work under the main menu “Mayke’s 2014 Exhibition”.
