Sheila Carnduff studied Printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art. Her extensive travels through Persia, Turkey, Portugal and Italy have inspired her favourite subjects of history, geography and culture. Maalula is a hilltown North- West of Damascus, famous for its many churches and shrines. Many pilgrims find their way through the Al-Qalamoun mountains to visit this Syrian town, holy to both Christians and Muslims. "Maalula" is part of The Damascus Series of Prints where Aramaic arches jossle for position with modern architecture showing how the holiday environment contrasts with the intrinsic history of this area. The Damascus series of prints are influenced by the gardens of the Levant contrasting with Aramaic arches and the surfeit of images in the Syrian landscape.
