Paper Dog aka Salsa

I may live in a digital world, but my love affair with paper has by no means diminished.
Many of us have some form of paper or another within hand’s reach most of the time, and yet we never think about the extraordinarily beautiful pieces of paper art that we could create with them if we ever took the time to try. The next time you’re about to throw out a grocery receipt or chewing gum wrapper, try to fold or cut it into something beautiful. Maybe you’ll get a flash of inspiration and create a work of art!

Here is a piece of work I created in November 2014. Paper Dog aka ‘Salsa’.
Created entirely out of used A4 paper.

Note:
I had a Shih Tzu dog called Salsa. Had to give her away as I moved countries. The look she gave me (as the new owner took her away from me) still lingers in my memory.

Roll-A-Coaster

As an artist, I have totally embraced re-used and re-cycled materials as medium for my art; and I am surging ahead.
I have been experimenting with a lot of such materials for my creations, and paper certainly is a favorite currently.

Roll-A-Coaster is one such creations and these craft product is now ready for marketing. Branding, packaging, online sales channel, and payment gateway are all ready now.
Each pack contains a set of 6 coasters. They have a water proof coating and should last as long as you keep loving them.

I have taken this one step further. I am utilizing low-income expatriates in the Middle East to produce these coasters for me. I have been tutoring a few of them for the past two months both to create these coasters and learn to be self-reliant. I pay them a nominal sum in advance to create these coasters. A second payment will be made after I make a sale. Certainly I am using the principle of Fair Trade.

Your support will make REAL difference in their lives.

One can buy these coasters from: https://www.etsy.com/shop/OwnARozario1

May the forest be with you.
