Vicki Nash has a BA MA in Visual Arts, Dip Ceramics. Her main art form is painting and drawing. She likes to use mixed media on paper and oil on canvas to try and capture light, colour and pattern, but mostly to try and portray the essence of the subject matter. Vicki also loves photography for its ability to instantly capture the fleeting moments of all of the above.
Himalayan Temple was taken in 2019 on a trip to Kedarnath, which is located on the Garhwal Himalayan range in the state of Uttarakhand, Northern India. In 2013 the town was destroyed, and thousands of people lost their lives in a devastating landslide. A huge boulder came to rest within meters of the back of the 1000-year-old Shiva Temple, which caused the mud and floodwaters to divert around both sides of the Temple, effectively saving it from destruction.
