This month’s Silver Talkies Social Meet was a riot of colors, charm, and creativity that left us all in awe! Thanks to our incredibly talented club member, Leela Cherian who is a Textile Artist. If a person’s home is a window into their soul, then Leela Cherian’s home is a window into her creative genius. Experiencing art on the wall of a museum or gallery is one thing, but to witness it within the surroundings where it was made is another, far rarer opportunity. She walked us through behind the scenes stories of her beautiful pieces of art adorning the walls in her house.
ABOUT THE ARTIST Textile artist Leela Cherian’s art quilts are a melange of various kinds of fabric, texture, and colours, all coming together to create heirloom pieces of art. Her work draws inspiration and ideas from her travels around the world; to Chinese gardens; the sights and sounds of India or her own beautifully decorated home and garden. Leela has held exhibitions in Kuwait, Bangalore and in the USA and has appeared on a show called Simply Quilts on American television to demonstrate one of her quilting techniques.
