I have had the pleasure of knowing Sapna for over three years. Her wisdom, talent and friendship are an inspiration. Conversing about life and how we navigate it, the lessons we are offered, our awareness, spirituality and the gift and impact of art are subject matter I love sharing with her. Many of those aspects of our friendship plus passion can clearly be seen through her painting. Her selflessness with art and her prime objective to touch people with her painting is a rarity. It’s not about money, it’s about spirituality. A particular painting struck a chord for me because living with seizures it encompassed the internal vision of how it feels to live with epilepsy on a daily basis. It was vibrant. The black of the figure against a red background displayed an intensity of emotion but in a positive way. That is not an easy feat to eliminate the projection of anger and frustration yet to overtly convey those emotions in such a way that it becomes positive.
Sapna and I share similar beliefs but yet there is always so much more to learn from her as she is one of life’s teachers.I treasure our friendship, and if you are reading this then you will have been touched by her gift too.
