A writer picked up a paint brush to tell her truth.
The paintings in the I Feel series came into existence because I wanted to let myself feel. In a world where we have to curb it all to be one thing or the other, and still somehow be authentic, these paintings tell my story, tell the snippets, the sagas, the anecdotes, the dreams and the nightmares. With these paintings I not only say how I feel, but also start the journey of accepting how I feel. Also, there's nothing more cathartic than throwing paint on a canvas. With my #MeToo and #Optimism paintings, which are part of the "I Feel" series, I'm standing up with other women who are telling their story, getting ready to tell their story or are unable to tell their story--I stand with all of them, the victims, the targets, the survivors. To eliminate gender inequality we need more women in high positions in politics, the corporate world, everywhere. We need role models that we can be inspired by and learn from.
All proceeds from painting sales go to fund ACLU. The process is simple. If you like a painting you pay ACLU and I send you the painting. All you pay me for is the shipping. If you wish to donate, please go to Amulya's Facebook fundraiser page.
