Catherine H

Catherine the founder of Exotic Roots. Enjoying to play with colours as she is in a constant evolution of style as her paintings express her mind through dreams that dance through the day and through the night in every moment of her life.  She is entirely self-taught and names Sri Lanka as her inspiration and teacher as its been her home for the last 25 years.  


Asia H kvacova

Self-taught by watching her mother at work and absorbing the tropical Sri Lankan scenery and energy all around her. Asia was formed in the relaxed pace of island life and was dedicated completely to art. 

You can describe her artwork as a tropical fantasy. She likes to get lost in the process of lines and patterns, colours, and meticulous detail. Her influences as an artist are first and foremost everything she sees, feels and experiences. To her, painting is a way to express colour in all its beauty. Her main medium is acrylic on canvas.


Inca Hewapathirana

Work varies between colourful depictions of dream cities; collages using vintage Pink Floyd books, on both canvas and terracotta dishes.

Her recent work centres on feminine psychology connected with the spiritual and natural worlds. Investigating aspects of self that revolve around identity and the wondering mind. Finding inspiration from poetry, music, shamanism and the cosmos in general.

Drawn to the transformative power of visual storytelling, Inca weaves personal spiritual experiences into her work.

Mirroring dreams and tropical psychedelic experiences involving animal, instinctual and subconscious worlds.
