Puspe: Sunflower Offering
Flower offerings are made so that all beings may be blessed. Often, when I see suffering around us in the world, the conflicts, wars, and hurt on every side, I am filled with a sense of helplessness. Painting these sunflowers as an offering is my act of prayer, and my offering for there to be healing in the world.

Born 1979, from Thimphu
Art draws me to her and has drawn the way I live life. A striking memory from childhood is my mother calling me over and over again to come out and join my family during a tour of the Cooch Behar Palace in India. Meanwhile, I was lost in all the details, lines, and motifs- every creeper, vine and flower, of the murals, and paintings adorning the Palace. When I did come out, my mother asked me what it was that kept me for so long. She tells me I said, “It was this beauty, all together in one place, and now I want to find it everywhere.” I was 9 years old.
I encountered VAST Bhutan as a high- school student, and began understanding the profoundness of art- to look inside myself to find and create beauty everywhere– in the mundane, the routine and the everyday. It has been a blessing for me to serve VAST Bhutan in various capacities, and to be part of such a special organization. I am committed to continue putting my whole life and being into upholding VAST Bhutan’s legacy. This is a legacy that opens up for artists, the vast possibilities of what beauty means.
