With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

About the Artist

My mother encouraged me to go to school, though she herself had never gone. I studied up to 12th grade, then my marriage was arranged. I don’t know why I needed to be married at 16.  After marriage I could not go to class but I took the School Leaving Certificate exam and passed with almost 60%.  I had a baby at age 17. My husband works as a guard.  Luckily I have a supportive mother-in-law who takes care of my children. She had been a painter at the  Janakpur Women's Development Centre and she has inspired me. Now, at 24, my dream is to be an artist.
