We search and desire for paradise outside our reach. We think paradise is a place or a home but I think of paradise as a feeling, an emotion. Something that’s always been within ourselves, in our thoughts or in our emotions, somewhere hidden.

Born 2001, from Dagana
My life changed when I met Asha Kama at Camp Raven, where children of armed force personnel could go in the summer. I was always interested in drawing, and when VAST Bhutan volunteered to teach art at the camp, I was immediately drawn. Asha recognized my interest and encouraged me to pursue it. I join VAST in 2017, and I am now a member and volunteer. The mediums that I often use are acrylic, pencil, and watercolors.
My family, friends, and especially Asha have always supported my art and inspired me to be a good human being. Discovering the world of great art has been thrilling, and I find the Renaissance period particularly exciting. I love this journey of being an artist even though I am still learning. I see obstacles as opportunities for learning.
