Why I do what I do

This website will give you a glimpse into my work as an artist,  community builder and activist. I have been negotiating the world through the lens of a creative entrepreneur for the last two decades. It's been a wonderful journey with a lot of learning and collaborating with people I deeply respect.
In the coming years, I believe that creative thinkers will be crucial to document, stitch, hold and present the world. We are at the very edge of collapse on one side, and of a future that can spin out into unimaginable wonders on the other. I believe we can get to the happier side by working together!

Sunflower & Moonflower

c
June 9th, 2008

As a continuation the ideas I am experimenting with.. i.e. the sun, moon, flowers and butterflies. I thought of linking up illusions of the sun and moon looking like flowers. In this process, the above painting. In this work, I intentionally gave it a fast finish. I was thinking that alot of my works are a bit crowded, with colours and textures… slightly decorative. Thus here I have sought of left it a little unfinished and retained a primary colour.

  • well, i get what you’re saying, and i think its great that you’re trying new stuff, different stuff. when you look at these two pieces how do you like them compared to the other stuff you’ve done?
    i personally love the flower series. i dont think they’re too much. in fact i love the complexity of them.
    i would contine to experiment though as you seem to be learning and growing in leaps and bounds!

  • i like your idea of exploration within the area of your interest – flowers and nature. its really good i think to continue to keep pushing out and weaving back in…somethings are always learnt by dwelling on something for a period of time. way to go girl! and dont worry about complexity and simplicity – just go with the flow and things will be figured out in retrospect. when was this work started and when was it completed…it might be interesting for all of us to give in the rough dates for each work – might be useful for us later in understanding time and work output patters na?
