Artist Statement  
There is joy, awe and at times a sense of loss in my relationship to the living world. The recurrence in nature that creates pattern also creates calm and in my continuous exploration of this phenomenon I seek an affinity with nature.
Moments of light expose a sense that the connection to nature we covet as humans is a connection to ourselves. Through my work I am reassured, in waves of realisation, that we are nature.

Three years ago I became a carer to my husband, a stroke survivor, and so also became essentially a single parent to two teenagers and through this time creating art has been a way to reintroduce myself back into my life. I seek myself in my life and my surroundings and often look to nature's principles and phenomenons to help me do this.

The use impermanent materials is symbolic of the fragility of nature and of human life and watercolour pigments and paper are materials that will eventually bio-digrade back into nature.

I invite the viewer, to do consider their relationship to our natural world and their place in it. 

     

 

 

Parul frequently seeks out the coast as the ocean remains one of her big loves. The sound of waves and the feeling of salt on the skin creates a nostalgia, that comes from a childhood spent by the sea in Dubai.

Sustainability

In 2018 Parul completed a course on Sustainability in Leadership at the Cambridge Institute of Sustainability. Elevating her sustainable and ethical standards of consumption is a value she works to incorporate into all aspects of her life.

Every limited edition archival Giclee print is printed on *bamboo paper. Each original painting is painted on high quality watercolour paper. 

*There is less water wasted in the cultivation of bamboo than traditional paper. Bamboo starts to regrow as soon as it is cut down and is naturally white, strong & soft so no chemicals are required to achieve this, making it a useful and sustainable natural product.
