Patricia Morley joined her husband, who was an officer in the Colonial Service, in Singapore in 1946, and as a professional portrait and sculptor began a period of intense artistic activity. Her main inspiration was her Malay or Malay-speaking household and the relatives and friends who gathered around. Through the medium of her art, Patricia Morley gained an understanding of and empathy for her "other family" which few European expatriates ever achieved. This book is a memoir of her life and includes a range of her most striking portraits.
