Me and the Banyan Tree
I associate my self with the ‘Banyan tree’. Banyan tree starts from a single root but spreads across miles and each new branch gets rooted in the new soil, same time the original root stays solid in place. Like the banyan tree I have traveled lot ,lived in different cultures,different countries, made friends of different nationalities, learnt a lot along the way but never forgot my original roots.The process of growing for me is always been adding new things to what is existing, not throwing the old away.
I am a married lady, having two grown up sons, I live with my husband,love traveling , I have been quilting since 1999. Entered international exhibition in Houston as a finalist in 2009 with my quilt “Mahabat Maqbara” .
