Crafting is a learning process and what I believe whatever your passion is, be a master of it. Always keep your work challenging and exciting. Else, there will be no excitement left in you. Hi I am Manpreet Bhamrah a passionate crafter and a mother and these two roles always keeps me rooted and gives me a sense of belonging and keeps me connected to the world around me and I feel so fortunate that God gave me the chance to explore and balance both the worlds so beautifully and every day I grow and learn things in a much better manner.
I hail from the beautiful valley of Dehradun and did my MBA in Finance and was a lecturer in Micro- Finance and I never knew that I will be a Crafter and a craft instructor one day. I left my job and choose to keep my focus on that which is truly inspiring, motivating, uplifting and what was keeping me happier. Ruh e Sukoon came into existence in 2015 as a hobby idea to give eternal peace to mind and soul. I have started my journey as a hobby artist which becomes a passion and turned into a small business in 2017. Ruh-e-Skoon's Sukoon ki Potli(basket of crafts) embodies the love for life, with a vast array of handcrafted household decorative pieces, made with a variety of craft materials. In a short span of time, my artwork got home nationally and internationally.
My traditional art and craft work is appreciated by many known international artists. I did a few exhibitions which became a hit. Recently I have started a blog and my first blog post was regarding sanitary napkin dispenser. Many people liked it nationally and internationally.
Art is as vast as the universe. The toughest thing about being an artist is that you never get satisfied with your own creativities. And being a mother you have to be on toes to fulfill all the desires of your little one in between your crazy creative hours but luckily I got a very patience kid, she always enjoys my creative rides of art even she is a big critic of my work at this tender age. I believe in spreading my learnings and teaching to others about handcrafting art and painting skills. I conduct regular workshops to teach kids and grown-ups alike and enable them to experiment on their own and help find their own passion. And I got this talent as a legacy from my mother. She is an extremely talented soul. I like to work with all the mediums of art but I love the oil medium the most. Apart from being an artist or a crafter, I love to explore new travel destinations, run marathons, trekking and writing poems. I am a kind of wanderlust traveler. I, my husband and my daughter have covered almost all the southern region of India, we like to explore in destinations.
My mother and my daughter are my inspiration factors. My mother played an important role in enhancing my talent. After my daughter’s birth, I came up with an idea of creating something for my daughter and my mother inspired me a lot for this creative journey. She herself is an artist and crocheter. A message I would like to convey to all Indian mothers who are talented and creative but never exposed to the world is that Life is about the experience and we should utilize this artistic gift of God. Start your journey today and shine like a star. Spread your learning to others. Continuous learning is one of the keys to success in life. No matter what you do. Unless you try to do something beyond what you have been doing, you will never grow so it's very important to know about your inner strength.
