For as long as i’ve known my husband, he has wanted an Arjuna inspired tattoo but he was never able to pin point the design or style he wanted. As a surprise anniversary present, I designed a tattoo based on everything I knew about him, his style, and his tattoo related ramblings. Design in hand, I took him for his first official Tattoo consultation. Not only was Arjun SUPER surprised, but he loved the design right off the bat! A few weeks and a few tweaks later, and we were back at the tattoo parlour to get inked. It was the most nerve wracking experience to know that there was no going back!
I am so honoured that my husband loved my work enough to put it on his body forever :)
For Ganesh Chathurti in 2015, I sculpted a Ganesha using air dry clay and painted it using ink & acrylic paint. It was a great project and the Ganesha continues to be displayed in our small mantle :)
This small 4 x 4″ Krishna with his Peacock was inspired by Madhubani Art, and my experimentation with Zentangle & Henna.
Navrathri is one of my favourite celebrations. It’s 9 days that is essentially devoted to Woman Power! The 9 days of Navrathri celebrate three hindu goddesses; The goddess of power (Durga), wealth (Lakshmi) and knowledge (Saraswati). The belief is that honoring the divine mother will bestow wealth, auspiciousness, prosperity, knowledge, and other powers into your life.
