I sketched scenes for "Passion & Peril on the Silk Road during my own gonzo road trip through
Central Asia. With my future husband, I endured landslides, village lockdowns, and
cold-water shangri-las... bought ancient beads and carpets from
refugees... survived being conned and being arrested. I discovered that
traveling the borderline between wonder and insanity creates the most
anxious characters and the most chilling plots.
I have also been a close observer of the art and antiquities markets and love exploring how antiquities get from tombs and archeological sites to museum displays.
