Kolams : Painted Prayers
Welcome to Kolams!

For generations, Indian women have passed on to their daughters the knowledge of the ritual wall and ground painting as a visual prayer, an invocation to the divine to protect their home and make it a sacred space. I have chosen to adapt the use of kolam designs and techniques in my paintings, monoprints, and encaustic pieces as an extension and transformation of this ancient art form into a more contemporary and permanent context.
