Zebra stripes

My love affair with animal print goes back a long time. I absolutely love the colours in nature. And I find Zebra stripes and leopard prints to be the ultimate in graphic impact. That each stripe and spot set is different in every animal and is unique like finger prints is amazing to me. It […]

Re-birth and Renewal

This paint splattered green kurta is about rebirth and renewal. It is the second ‘self-portrait’ in a set of three. I let so many negative people and things make me bitter for a while. But that bitterness started to hurt more than the people and things had. I am a positive person by nature and […]

Paint splattered!!

That black kurta speaks of the pain I endured. This next one I hope to be of healing. This olive green kurta is also about five years old now. It has seen me through many days and nights of painting. Every splatter is a subconscious mark or gesture of joy or frustration. There are deliberate […]

X marks the spot

Insert here… In an earlier post I mention this black kurta that could probably replace me at events. What probably cannot be stressed enough is just how much this kurta has seen and been through with me. It is almost a metaphor for my life and milestones in a way. For almost all of the […]

Wood & Textile Jewellery on the shop NOW!

What it means to be an artist – On AudioGyan

I got an email the other day from Kedar Nimkar asking to speak to me. He wanted to do a podcast related to my work. I said sure and then googled the site Audiogyan. And truth be told I got lost in listening to a few podcasts immediately.  There is a rich tapestry of podcasts […]

A hundred little stitches

Sashiko (刺し子, literally “little stabs”) is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching (or functional embroidery) from Japan. … The white cotton thread on the traditional indigo blue cloth gives sashiko its distinctive appearance, though decorative items sometimes use red thread. #sashiko – I finally started work on something that has been on my mind for […]

The Economic Times – March 2017

Sustainability is the buzz word for everyone today and so it should be. We are consuming our planet at a frightfully stupendous pace! To be asked to give a sound bit on the subject was a no-brainer. I try and re-cycle, re-use where ever I can. If I can value add or up-cycle then I […]
