Celebrated Buddhist Pointillist Painter and Sculptor Sherab Khandro (Shey) is debuting new work just in time for the holiday season. A noted speaker and Tibetan Buddhist philosopher, Khandro's work is sought after by collectors from all walks of life.

In "Open to Life", a chapter in her recent art series "Becoming," Sherab Khandro continues the exploration of the butterfly image as a symbol of transformation, flight and freedom. Inspired by her own journey of discovery, has created three new pieces: a painting, a pendant and a poem. Each piece in this chapter is a reminder to spread our wings and take flight with a fully open heart. In this new painting, the butterfly rises ribbon like from the fire into the light. Using vibrant layers of color and her signature style of pointillism, each dot is offered as a prayer for the wearer's happiness and freedom. A finely crafted pendant, cast in sterling silver, is a beautiful talisman, an invitation to life and living, "Heart open, wings spread, an invitation to life and living" says artist Sherab Khandro. This is the fourth piece for Khandro in her jewelry designs.

Khandro's deepest wish is to nourish and inspire the hearts and minds of others through her work. She is sought after as a speaker and teacher. In October she led a workshop at the internationally acclaimed Omega Center in New York.

She is one of a handful of western artists to receive formal training from Tibetan masters in exile in the United States in bringing forth the traditional sacred art in the way it has been done in Tibet for centuries. Using the neo-impressionist style of pointillism in her paintings, tiny dots of color create rich vibrant imagery. Utilizing the intent of her vow as a Bodhisattva, a vow taken by Buddhists to return until the suffering of each soul has come to an end, each stroke of the brush holds a prayer of compassion. Each dot is offered as a jeweled universe, a prayer to the Buddha to end suffering in the world.

Sherab Khandro's work is available at Goldenstein Gallery in uptown Sedona where she is often found painting and sculpting in the gallery.

Goldenstein Gallery is located at 390 N. SR 89A in uptown Sedona and is open daily with ample parking available behind the gallery.
