Rizwana's Magic

I was stunned when I saw these hand embroidered bags & picture frames my mother had made.
She sells them at Rizwana's Corner
Her other embroidery work lives at Her media include Silk, Khadi (hand woven textiles) and other crazy things.
She's a self taught artist, a Bonsai Maestro & a prolific author of books & stories in 2 languages (Hindi & Marathi). Her work has been exhibited & shown in and around Mumbai (Bombay) & Pune.
She draws her inspiration from nature & her extensive travel throughout India & it's heartland.
As teenagers we used to laugh when people called her a 'witch' for being able to accomplish so much independantly.
