Art is simultaneously inspiring and soothing; Contemporary South Asian art especially, because of my familiarity with it, is my ‘comfort food for the soul’!
To me South Asia means myriads of color steeped in mysticism and I was able to channel some of this appreciation when I became a member of SAAC/CAIS in 2009.
I was also able to mix both my worlds when I started my apparel business: Indian embroidery skills passed down through generations ( e.g. Zardosi) were translated into a cowgirl’s rodeo bling denim jacket!
I look forward to contributing to people becoming aware of the different kinds of art that the Indian sub continent and South Asia have produced!
