Table for Carol

Carol has been a long standing client and now a friend. She had an old teak wood table that had been lying around at home. Not really being given the place it should have for its history and long standing service to the family. So she called and asked that I paint it as a […]

A box for Sanjana

Some commissions take you out of your comfort zone. This box for Sanjana, was a little like that. Now I have painted Memory boxes before, but this one was done after quite a long break from that style so it took a little while to get comfortable with it again. You can see some more […]

Apparently I’ve got to be Dead!

Buy from living artists. The dead ones don’t need the money. About 14 years ago on a trip abroad with my husband, we found ourselves at the lounge at Brussels airport. The place was packed but we managed to find a table. Sat down and looked up to see a lady with a full plate […]

Blue curtains. Blue Chairs.

These blue curtains hold a lot of memories for our family. My parents met and married in 1970 and this was the first set of curtains they bought back then for their new home. The fabric is a beautiful silk weave in an absolutely gorgeous blue/teal color. I understand that these cost a princely sum […]

New fabric from scraps

Any project involving cloth – whether it be to upholster chairs or make garments or bags – will result in a whole pile comprising of bits and pieces of left over fabric. In the past I have used them to make little charms for the bags I make or even as little tassles for the […]

Sadhu(s) on a plate!

You all know me and re-cycling/ up- cycling! If there is still life left in it – you know I will figure out use for it 🙂 A few years ago (in 2013) I had papered some old melamine plates with pages from my son’s old notebook and then I painted over them. There were […]

He talked about how much he loved India and how much he was looking forward to his travels exploring my country. He expressed […]

Nazar Battoo’s for the KIAL Bangalore airport

My work has more often than not had an element of good luck/ keeping the faith/warding of evil. So it is no surprise that my dearest friend – Meghna Vakada – asked me to paint three  Nazar Battoo paintings for her swanky new cafe Barley and Grapes Cafe at the Bengaluru International Airport. It has […]

Chilli Sutra

My long time readers know I have been painting Nimboo Mirchis for many many years. You all also know that the Kamasutra has featured in my older work on kettles as well. Recently I started a nimboo mirchi painting after a few months and somehow I was just not happy with the way the chillis […]

Continuing my collaboration under The Fusion Projects with motorcycle company – Royal Enfield, I was in Goa for three gorgeous days last week. It was hot and humid but oh so much fun. It was for The Royal Enfield Rider Mania 2018 – an annual community driven event in Goa in the third week of […]
