About Sonam Yangchen

I have always been interested in art and artists since childhood. My father used to paint and he has been the foremost influence. I am fascinated by almost everything natural, simple and artistic but apparently I draw my inspiration from hand-woven Bhutanese textile  patterns. It’s captivating to see and feel how each and every detail is so simple yet so intricate and comprehensive. I am a home-based entrepreneur. I paint these patterns on small light wooden chips and craft them into earrings. I try to incorporate the patterns even in other paintings that I do. In the world where fashion changes daily, I would like to stay deeply rooted in tradition. Traditions are beautiful, rare and precious.

Born 1991 from Trashigang
