I am enchanted with this collage -- it is even more colorful and appealing than pictured. It will be a grand source of inspiration for my own work. It was well-packed and received in a timely way. I'd definitely recommend purchasing from this shop.

About

Indian inspired but happily borrowing from American, European, other Asian traditions.

I left India a long time ago, but India hasn't left me yet. My art and craft are deeply influenced by Indian aesthetics, especially that of South India. I use the colors, motifs and textures of India. My yoga art is centered around the elephant, most beloved of Indian animals. The materials I use for my journals are old, handwoven silk saris or jute rice bags. I love the color magenta, the ubiquitous color in all things Indian and peacock, both the bird and the color, elephants and monkeys. At the same time, I enjoy using elements from Western and other Asian cultures.

I love creating art and crafts. I put a lot of my heart into what I make. I want those who buy my creations to feel the same joy that I feel creating them. But selling also has a purpose for me. What I earn from the shop, I donate to a charity called Sukriti Social Organization, founded by my sister who is physically handicapped.This organization provides help and support to handicapped children and adults. You can find all about it here at www.sukriti.org

My mixed media art and journals have been featured in the prestigious Cloth Paper Scissors magazines several times.

Welcome to my shop DharmaKarmaArts!

I have a successful career in higher education but have been an artist/craftswoman of some kind or the other all my life. I paint in oils and in watercolor and came to jewelry making only recently. I am self-taught in many of my crafts and what I did not learn myself, I learned it from my mother.

I left India a long time ago but India has not left me yet. The artistic creations in this store are inspired by Indian aesthetics, especially that of the the Tamil culture. I use the colors, materials that were part of my life growing up in India and which have informed and shaped my own idea of beauty in my artistic creations.

My products and art are made with great care, and I take great pride in my craftsmanship. I use high quality, natural materials in my jewelry products and artist grade color paints and Arches watercolor paper in my art.

If you are interested in knowing more about my work, feel free to convo me via Etsy conversation or read my blog http://dharmakarmaarts.blogspot.com

Proceeds from the sales in this shop are donated to helping handicapped children and adults. For more information go to http://www.sukriti.org
