LESOTHO SERIES

Lesotho - my home,  The Kingdom in the Sky is a hidden gem and a unique African country, with the highest low point above sea level of any nation and completely landlocked by the Republic of South Africa. These are portraits of people photographed by my father's colleague David Ambrose who spent decades documenting the traditional life in the mountains. He gave me a box of slides and asked me to promise to some day make them into painings.I chose watercolors because they capture the otherworldly, ethereal feeling of being in the mountains. ​
