On the Good Homes wishlist: #85

I am thrilled to be part of the Good Homes Anniversary Issue 2014 and in no less than their coveted wishlist! Here is a feature on my Suzani inspired pieces – The Big Box, The Suzani Curvy chairs and the two Suzani High chairs. Thank you Meenakshi Shankar for a great piece.   

Main mast dikhri na?

I got a call from Rutika a few weeks ago asking if I could custom paint a small box for her sister. Now with school exams, shifting schools, the new school schedule, various formalities, the coming holidays AND other pending commissions, I was not really sure if I could. Though truth be told I had […]

The Sunday Standard Magazine – Mar 2014

This article was published a while back in March 2014 in ‘The Sunday Standard Magazine‘ but between school exams and year ending madness, I forgot to post it. Actually, I never got around to reading it. Now with school holidays, I have some time to breathe… Thank you Pallavi Rebbapragada for the wonderful write up. […]

‘Swishing’ Skirts

I have learnt much from my maternal grandmother (nani). A large part of who I am is because of her. What she taught me about drive and commitment at age 8 is something that makes me – me! I grew up with my nani making clothes for me and I learnt the basics at her […]

The BIG Box

My work is about building on memories, not losing them. And this wooden trunk is loaded with memories. It belonged to my brother who was a pilot in the Indian Air Force. He has recently retired. My father too is an ex-Indian Air Force pilot. My grandfather is ex-army. My brother’s father-in-law too was in […]

Suzani – Now in my colours

These two chairs are a pair that were passed down from some distant relative at some time or the other. One of those temporary furniture options for a temporary house kind of thing. Except the chairs just stayed on. They were truly old world with a Sunmica back rest and woven plastic netting – in […]

Suzani Chairs

Suzani is everywhere. The ‘it’ graphic and pattern for the season it would seem. I had the same idea six months ago when these 30 year old chairs were given a new lease of life. As I mentioned in my previous post, I am late in telling you all of these chairs. In fact there […]

Newspaper and holidays

I am really late in posting these pictures. The kids are back in school after their winter break. Thick in the midst of school madness. The germ of this idea actually started six months ago during their summer vacations! Yes, I realize I am really LATE in posting these images 🙂 The two months of […]

Graphic Sunday

The light was brilliant and although I am sharing a bit of something I had no plans to just yet, the photographs are amazing. I love the ‘zebra’ stripes. I love the bursts of colour from my artwork and I absolutely love the mood these pictures have captured. I spent a wonderful Sunday yesterday with […]

Bangalore based Monopoly it was..

My friends Bhupendra and Ramya asked me to custom-design a ‘khiladi’ table with not just the regular snakes and ladders+chess+carrom, but also a Bangalore based monopoly. It was very interesting to make. Along the way I decided to take help from another good friend, Roopa Pai (of www.bangalorewalks.com fame) who helped me decide what real estate […]
