Black necked cranes migrate to the most beautiful valleys of Bhutan in winter- Bumdeling and Phobjikha, both wide with expansive open sky. They roost, perform their graceful mating dance, and fill the valley with their melodious trumpet calls. Those who live in the valley visited by the cranes believe that these are ancestors, come to visit the places they once lived in.

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.
