Welcome back to my blog! When I first started the art of paper quilling, I began by showcasing my interpretations of nature, colors, emotions and thoughts. The bright colors and elaborate designs have been particularly inspired by aspects of Mother Nature. Over time, I have been able to perfect and create ethical and sustainable art and jewelry.
If you have been following my blog and newsletters since a while, you would have noticed how often I talk about being inspired by Mother Nature, by the graceful curves of birds, the gentle movements of butterflies, the summer delights of fresh fruit, the vibrant colors of fall. I turn to art as a means of expressing these.
I receive so many queries about the process and intricacies of paper quilling. Often, my family and friends mention how they wish they could try their hand at it too. Many were surprised to hear me encourage them to start, because they always thought it would be too intricate a process for a beginner to pick up. So, I started thinking and decided I would come up with a way to share my passion in an easy and achievable manner.
I turn to art as a means of communication. Whether I am feeling happy and want to express jubilation, or I need to sort out the thoughts in my head by entering my calm space which is my art room, I have found the process of paper quilling to be extremely fulfilling. I would love to help others find similar passions for themselves.
