Somewhere, you can be sure, Chidiya Udd is a 6 year old’s favourite game.

 

The game is played with excitement, laughs and a whole lot of fun, and this is the spirit that my art studio - Chidiya Udd also attempts to celebrate. The words Chidiya Udd literally mean, ‘fly away little bird’, and I hope to pay homage to the indefatigable human spirit with stories from the commonplace of everyday living and the myriad tiny moments that make life and dreams.

At Chidiya Udd I create art; ranging from childrens’ literature, gender and social communication to commissioned works for individuals, NGO’s and other organizations. And with the vibrant daubs of colour, texture and form, I hope to find that little piece of open, blue sky.
