The belly dancer swirls serenely in a mist of golden veils and skirts.
Behind me, a swallow beat startled wings into the air. My head turned in time to see it surge out of the palace and into the sky, to where its family spiralled overhead. Did they spare a thought for us earth-bound creatures?
I found her then. Movement caught my eye amongst the golden fingers of sunlight stretching between the colonnades and arches.
She had no idea I was there. I watched her fly, golden silks swirling around her, loath to intrude upon her moment of freedom.
My news could wait until she had done.

What appealed to me most about [Ailene’s] art was how each piece both told a story in itself and linked with other paintings and the other figures to a wider story as well.
You feel like you have a chapter, a piece of the narrative, while the story continues to unfold elsewhere.
Also, each piece has its own strong, vibrant palette and colouration – almost again like a separate chapter – so I was able to buy the individual piece that spoke to me and fit with my home and other art easily.Gareth from Cambridge
I like Ailene’s art because it seems like every picture is alive. I feel like it’s not just a picture, it’s a kind of unsaid story that makes me look closer and wonder about it.
I bought my favourite print and have told all my friends to look at Ailene’s art. My favourite painting is “Does the dance of the Sashiana mean anything to you?”. I loved it at first sight. I belly dance, and the artwork reminds me that there are people who share my passion for dancing.Lena from Tauranga
