From 1994 - 2005, she travelled across the world drawing and painting in Australia, Turkey, Cape Town, China, Pakistan, Kyrgystan, Tajikistan, California and Long Island, USA. In 2001 she rode across Central Asia with a travel writer and made a film that the Discovery Channel bought called "Beyond the Mountains of Heaven" and co-wrote the book "Silk Road, Troubled Dreams".
