I'm a Tibetan artist and thangka painter. Educated at Sera Monastery, and currently living in Somerville. In An exploration of the mind within : I explores four main themes: man's universe and mental patterns, traditional Tibetan symbolism, political imagery and the relationship of humans with nature and technology. Influenced by traditional Tibetan buddhist art themes and fused with organic and natural forms.

As a Tibetan political activist and community organizer, I interprets current and historic socio-political events and human behavior in combination with ideas shaped by experiences from my life as a shepherd, a monk, a stupa builder, and a carpenter, pursuing my own path from the age of five. In my paintings, I tells the story of humans trapped in samsara and repeating the same actions under different circumstances at different points in time.
