I feel related to the philosopher Santayana who said: “Why should things not be highly absurd, futile and impermanent? They are and so do we – and those things and we go very well together. ” George Santayana

Art, love and peace makes me.
inspired by Raashish India
What makes me, me? My need to stay individual and to create art. When I was 2, I declared I was going to be an artist and I have stayed true to this. I find it impossible to separate my need to create from who I am… even after a major illustration deadline I then pick up a pencil and draw for relaxation! I can’t even imagine who or what I’d be without my art – that’s what makes me, me!

I think it’s about the boundaries that surround us and how our response to those boundaries shape us a people; those boundaries can be cultural, mental, physical, implicit or explicit. Do we observe them, subvert, hide within, question, accept, remain oblivious or openly defy or just not see them. It’s what my art is also about!

What makes me/me? Well I’m like a big ball made of melancholic, artistic, political anger and frustration. And I’m trying to navigate this big ball of strangeness through this weird and trying life!!

After completion of their technological training the PANDAVAs and KAURAVAs were asked by their teacher DHRONACHARYA to aim and shoot a bird which was set by him as their target on a tree top. While the people were targeting DHRONACHARYA asked one by one what they are noticing….all, except ARJUNA answered that they are noticing the tree…leaves…flowers and the bird…only ARJUNA told he is noticing only the birds eye….(This is from MAHABHARATA…)…THIS SHEER ABILITY OF OBSERVING MADE ME WHAT I AM.

Trying to live in both simplicity and love. As a “wounded healer” to continue to be grateful for what is, and pay it forward. To be open to the questions, recognizing it is the journey that is important, and that we are more alike than different. (Maya Angelou). Grateful for all who have come into my life and those I may never know, however, continue to feed us with their own legacies and wisdom. Better to light a candle than curse the darkness. One day, one step, one breath at a time. Namaste.

Born in a bombing raid and surviving against the odds, my aim was to bring cheer to my family. Bestowed with a talent to paint I became an artist, mostly enjoying portraits. Between commissions I am working on a series called ‘feisty women’. I have been described as having emotional intelligence.
