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 http://creativeembroidery.blogspot.com/ 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.
