It's already a month since Funk Factory was launched! I would like to thank all those who have liked my Blog and my work, for all the appreciation I have received through Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, it has been tremendous! What excites me the most is connecting with Artists, Designers, Bloggers and Like-Minded individuals from all over the World. My Aspiration for Funk Factory has always been to experience the world’s cultures, traditions and more importantly the people, to then create designs and products that are supportive of the world we live in today. Our world is changing and we need to think about how sustainable our designs are for the current environment. My hope is for the Earth to be as it once was, before we started tainting it, so along with the gift of life to our children we can pass on this beautiful earth, for them to flourish in. I am elated to see your designs, ideas and inspirations while I share my own with you through my blog.
On a personal note I want to share with you my greatest inspiration, my daughter Ishana!
Ishana as per our Hindu scriptures means "The Invisible power that governs this Universe” I believe this power lies in each of us and together we make this universe. She has taught me the true meaning of being “ALIVE”
I feel like a child on a merry-go-round, experiencing Life in a whole new Light. Growing up in a rather close-minded atmosphere, expecting to conform to rules of relations and society, I felt caged in a place I called home. Here is when I developed a fanciful imagination, that combined with my Mother’s belief in me compelled me to believe in my dreams and myself. Who knew an imagination that grew to rescue me in my childhood would become my best ally in the design world. Who knew I would learn to live and be what I was meant to be from a 2 year old! Children emulate their parents, so as a role model I will run, chase, leap and grab hold of my dreams. Grab what is meant to be mine!
I am growing my wings now, at 31, and will be taking flight soon! I hope you will join me in this experience, as each one of you now, is part of shaping my world. And though I will remain a small fragment in this world of talent I will nevertheless be an important ONE…….. Global Love Coming your way ……..so till then STAY FUNKY!
