Meet Sejal Mody, the creator of this beautiful piece of art.

Sejal Mody: In search of freedom through Art

Colours express emotion; textures express intention and composition expresses narration. This is true for most art, but unique to each artist.

Born and raised in Mumbai, Sejal Mody exhibited a keen interest and talent in the arts. She studied fine arts at Sir J.J. School of Arts, Mumbai collecting a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Unhappy with the one-dimension world of paintings, she decided to trail ceramics. Realising that a mere certificate course in pottery would not take her far, she went all the way to the famed Andretta Pottery & Crafts Society at Kangra in Himachal Pradesh to pursue her dreams.

Sejal says, “Painting is a continuous process. Even when I don’t have my material with me, I keep doing it in my mind most of the time. Whenever I see something that inspires me, it gets registered in my mind in the form of an image.”  Sejal’s abstract expressions evolve from the wheel; bursting into scintillating colours, shapes and sizes and ultimately reaching the wall as a framed piece of art. Her multifaceted virtuosity include several mediums such as glass painting, wood etching, acrylic and oil paintings, ceramics, dyeing, sketching, photography, graphic art.

Sejal exhibited a keen interest and talent in the artsThe thing that strikes her the most is colour. Painting is a very subtle medium and it speaks of the most subtle phases of our responses. She responds most spontaneously to colour. The images that she perceives in her mind consist mostly of colour rather than form.

Sejal takes care of each material used in her work. Like in the wooden frames used to install plates, she selects the wood by visiting timber yards spread all over the city.

The colour of the frame and the size is all planned and the carpenters are given instruction; the entire process supervised in her own studio.

In the past, she has been awarded the 3rd place in “Painting of the Month” by The Trinity Arts Guild, Texas, USA. She has been invited to participate in the “Monsoon Art Show” sponsored and held at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai.  Sejal has also exhibited her works at Trinity Arts Guild, Texas, USA.

“Towards freedom is the direction that my work takes. The art work comes straight through a free mind!” signs off Sejal, already lost in her world of her next creation.

The Wooden Rustic Trunk Box and its place in home decor

We all like to have very beautiful and elegant interior decor in our home; especially in the living area. We also want to make sure that the decor looks clean, tidy and beautiful all the time. When you have kids around, and their stuff lying everywhere in the house, it becomes a seemingly impossible task. And suddenly a guest may pop in, unannounced, getting us into an embarrassing situation. We do not like the guests to see toys, newspapers, magazines just lying around, on the floor, especially in the living room. All of us must have come across this situation many a times.

Reading Nook 2

Converting odd corners into reading nooks

While designing spaces, sometimes we come across odd corners which are difficult to use for the usual functions. I have often made good use of such corners by converting them into reading nooks. Reading Nook 1There is nothing more relaxing than curling up in such a space on a Saturday afternoon with a book (or a kindle!).

Some clients that I have interacted with have come back saying that such spaces have encouraged children to read more. Kids also begin to understand that books have greater value in our lives than toys.

Creating such nooks is usually inexpensive. There is no expensive piece of furniture to be brought. The design of the space is usually a Reading Nook 3factor of the odd corner itself and one can pick up inexpensive, comfortable furniture.
