A Science Project- I made these two statues to demonstrate differences that happen to the human body after Parkinsonism.
More info on Parkinsonism (Source Wikipedia):
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system.Early in the course of the disease, the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, thinking and behavioral problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease, whereas depression is the most common psychiatric symptom. Other symptoms include sensory, sleep and emotional problems. Parkinson’s disease is more common in older people, with most cases occurring after the age of 50. The disease is named after the English doctor James Parkinson, who published the first detailed description in An Essay on the Shaking Palsy in 1817.
Being an artist, I find shapes almost everywhere! My daughter made graham crackers which were looked like buildings with small windows on it. I thought for a minute and then I picked up some more crackers and different kinds of biscuits from the cupboard, took some bread crumbs and some freshly baked brownie pieces. And in a few minutes I saw a small and delicious cracker town which I named Crackerville.
‘Get creative this Diwali’- I organize this workshop every year before Diwali, especially for mommies, mommy also needs little creative time for herself. As a woman I like flowers very much, so I chose roses. For this project we used Sculpey terracotta clay, it is very easy to handle. We spent a good time while creating it, all mommies done a good job! To see some more picture of ‘making’ please go to ‘Portfolio’ section. Happy Diwali. ll शुभ दिपावली ll
It was a training session to the teacher and her assistant from ‘आश्रम शाळा’ a welfare organisation for orphan and street children from Junnar Village (जुन्नर) in the district of Pune (पुणे). They both learnt to paint so that they could teach the students in their school to paint and sell the oil lamps (पणत्या) to earn money, during Diwali festival. You will see lots of beautiful diyas in the market now a days, people like more decorative things than the simple ones and why not, after all Diwali is a festival of colors and celebration! 🙂 To see more pictures of my painted diyas click on portfolio. Happy Diwali.

It was fun doing the floral art on Easter Eggs…Spring is here!
These are the original eggs, emptied from inside. I learnt the technique of removing the inside part of the egg from my artist friend Lara. Then I painted them with beautiful floral art specially to welcome the spring!
I moved my some stuff to my country India. These cute looking delicate guys traveled half the globe by ship and then on the road by truck for almost three months…but still they survived…feeling happy for them 🙂
