"As a young woman, Sonabai Rajawar finds herself alone, day after day after day, for almost fifteen years of marriage. No family, no friends... And then one day, she 'makes' her way out of her oppressive loneliness into a world of creativity, beauty and joy. This sensitive telling of Sonabai's story follows her transformative artistic journey from the tactile experience of her first creations in clay, innovative experiments with colour and light and unfettered play with pattern and design, to being embraced by the art world. Rich photographs augment the telling, for a fascinating introduction to the life, work and milieu of this quietly strong, self-taught artist. Together they offer a detailed look at her art and the organic growth of her distinctive creative vision. In the process, they also evoke a compelling profile in courage and the larger story of how Sonabai's art, like all great art, transcends the personal to the universal"--Back cover.
