The Blue Poppy is Bhutan’s national flower.
It is so rare and that there have been international expeditions dedicated to simply get a glimpse of this alpine flower, which grows in altitudes where it is hard for humans to even breathe. Yet the Blue Poppy lives out its short life fulfilling its own purpose, blue like a piece of sky pasted on earth.

Born 1992, from Tsirang
I have always enjoyed creative work. I became interested in painting after a program on television about art. I tried to replicate the colours and the flow of the paints but without guidance, I was like a ‘ship in the ocean without a rudder’. I was fortunate to come across artists who tutored and guided me at VAST Bhutan.
In college, I was introduced to ‘hay art’ at a friend’s place. I was fascinated and wanted to learn more about it. As I started doing this form of art, the beginning was rocky but with practice I became better. I am grateful to have people give me their honest feedback.
Now I am very confident and enjoy my creative process.
