Mama, we miss you.

You know how you can smell your mamas hair when you hug her? Or how you'll do any silly impression; even fake tap dance like Fred Astaire to make her laugh? I remember. Motherhood has arrived for me, but where oh where is my mama? How many times I've wanted to call her & ask her questions. How many times I've imagined her snuggling my baby & telling me to treasure these fleeting days. & I do. Because I know she would. Happy Birthday mama! 
*This is a photo my papa took of her in Kashmir, India, on a boat filled with flowers. I still imagine her drifting on this fragrant boat sometimes.

The Girl & the Goldfish


This mama is flying a delicate silk goldfish kite on this blue sky day; her little one strapped to her back watching her every move. The flowers weave an intricate pattern of jewel-like colours of emerald, ruby, sapphire & citrine. Inspired by my time in East Asia with all it's every day beauty. 
This painting measures at 30" x 30" & is available for sale SOLD.

Madame Coco Spots a Leopard

This curious traveler has made quite the exotic sighting of a sleek prowling leopard. Coincidentally they both appear to be contemplating the beauty of nature. Various hues of cyan, turquoise & teals make up the 
intricate​ ground that is adorned in a menagerie of flora & fauna. Inspired by 
the meticulously detailed ​Indigenous Mexican Otomi art & the magnificent
​ 
nature of India. This painting measures 31.5" in diameter & is available FOR SALE. All inquiries are welcome at shirinsahba @gmail.com

Dusk Rider


Mystery surrounds her as she rides her bicycle fast as the wind, her lime yellow dress floating behind her. The moody dusk falls on the day in brilliant colours. The ground is a combination of a garnet, claret & magenta red pattern that illuminates towards the horizon, the sky is aglow with soft blues, pinks & oranges.
This painting measures 31.5" in diameter & is available FOR SALE. All inquiries are very welcome at shirinsahba @gmail.com.

They Meet Again

On a crisp Autumn​ day two pups & their owners serendipitously​ happen across one another once more...​The luminous​ blue sky day is melting into a glowing sunset, & the ground is a detailed pattern of colourful leaves of all shapes & sizes. This pattern is inspired by my travels to Japan, as well as my love for modernist & Nordic design.

Oh la la bébé!

 I thought to share a couple of photos of the last few months since baby Miró's arrival. It has been such a whirlwind that I realized I never announced his birth here. We have really delighted in every step of his baby-hood. He coos & ahhs & smiles at artwork constantly, whether it's an african mask, painting or mobile. I installed a few mobiles in the house & hung paintings all over, so that every corner that he looks he makes that cooing sound!
