“NYC Fashionistas(os): for the first time probably ever you can see modern Bhutanese fashion and meet our friend/pioneering designer Chimmi at Real NYC Market this Sat & Sun. She’ll be sharing what she shares with us: ancient weaving patterns, auspicious symbolism, and the huge potential of modern Bhutanese fashion to create sustainable income for rural households across the country. Extra credit to the person who snags the raw silk scarf made with dyes from strawberries which I helped pick at 6 a.m. in a misty Himalayan forest. Or at least go say what’s up and give her gifts to bring back to me. We’re excited for her and it seems Real is as well judging by their FB page AdriAnne, Christine, Eva, Francesca, Caitlin, Evan, Fionna,Alexandra, Prudence, Beth, Matthew, Dana, Dana, Kristina, Michael, Kelly,Keating, Rodger, Chimmi, Alanna”  Thank you Vincent Roazzi, Jr

“Thank you to our team of hardworking weavers and staff for making a successful batch of natural dyed silk and wool yarn.”

ARTIST STATEMENT

“Abstract art is not about doing its about being. It is not part of cognitive reasoning, it’s a new limitless experience.” My paintings are inspired by people nature and life’s journey. The organic forms shapes and energy I observe fuel my subconscious and its spirit is manifested in my art. I work very spontaneous and capture the essence of my subjects then over time, apply many layers on my work giving it a very authentic timeless feel. I like for the viewer to be drawn in and make an emotional connection. Overall my art is a celebration of life.
