India - Books to Read

India - Books to Read

Books are super cheap here in India so definitely buy a few.
I’m not a reader but when I travel I make myself buy books that are usually about or set in the country I’m visiting. It makes the stories more vivid and magical as you can understand and imagine the settings. I even go as far as to dividing up the pages for the total amount of time I’m away so that I must complete the book before my return, as as soon as I arrive back home, day to day life sets in and the magic has gone a little. I find it very inspiring allowing my mind to get lost and creations can begin.

NZ Sculpture OnShore - Holi

NZ Sculpture OnShore - Holi

This project has been a long process and very challenging, which I thrive on, as you learn so much when you have to come up with new and different ways to get things done. Art is constant problem solving - always thinking outside the box, I can not tell you how many hours/months I’ve spent researching, talking, meeting with people, testing, exhausting all options to come up with the best solution. I’ve spent a lot of energy on this which makes me really value and appreciate her and the art itself.

I am really excited to be part of this amazing event which helps raise money for The Child Cancer Foundation. There are 46 owls in total that started off blank for artists to work their magic.  My piece was sponsored/designed for Uniworld Boutique River Cruises and was inspired by the wall pattern and colours of the stateroom aboard Uniworld’s S.S. Joie de Vivre.

Hannahs Custom Shoe Project

    

This was a really fun enjoyable project that I got to do as soon as I flew back from India - so it was pretty intense as I only had a few days to get most of these shoes painted before the big event which was down in Wellington.

Ema Frost In India

A brief snippet of my travels to India - to the South and my home away from home Udaipur, Rajasthan.

India is becoming a second home for me now, there is something magical and special about this place, it’s such a interesting and diverse country that there is always more to see and do, and each time I go I travel to a different area - this time it was the South of India, but I base myself in Udaipur in Rajasthan.

I get so much inspiration from travelling, I love to get lost in different worlds and cultures.
