Deb studied Chinese Brushpainting for 5 years in Singapore. “I like many aspects of this style – from the pure intention of the painting to the practical use of natural materials.

I facilitate individual workshops teaching this technique combined with Ecopsychology methods of reconnecting with nature.”
