This photograph was taken at a Hindu religious ceremony which lasted for 7 days. The teaching began with "Pothi Yatra" which was a procession where devotees carried a copy of "Srimad Bhagavata" (wrapped in silk cloth) to the alter so that the text (and learning) will receive the blessings of the Lord.

After studying painting and printmaking at Pratt Institute, I owned and operated a Book Arts and Textiles studio in NYC. Working there for about 15 years, I divided my time between designing and creating one-of-a-kind books and teaching traditional bobbin lacemaking techniques.
But after we had our first child, I decided to put my career on hold.... and for a long time, I did not expect that I was ever going to be able to focus on my art again.
However, three years ago my husband and kids surprised me with an iPad and iPhone, insisting that I was “too old-fashioned” and needed to “get with the times.” These devices instantly rekindled my passion for painting, and introduced me to Photography.
