Our grandfather was a consummate artist who added beauty to everything he did. Though a teacher by profession, he drew and painted. He added beauty to mundane activities; even the charts he prepared to teach the English alphabet to his grandkids were decorated with beautiful writing in very intrinsic fonts. Driven by his intense love of life and resourcefulness, he drew and painted even when life was hard and made use of materials around him. He saw brightness even in the bleakest of circumstances and lived and laughed with such gusto.
Mummy moved through life elegantly. A big personality who drew attention wherever she went, through her grace, energy, engaging conversation, and beauty. In everything she did, she was the very definition of class. A firm believer in beauty and perfection, she hated sloppy work. Her keen observational skills, kindness and humour, made her the ultimate storyteller. She saw the people behind every piece of work, and they mattered to her.
Driven by intense love of life and admiration for excellence, they loved art. They saw the people behind every piece of work with immense kindness and humour, and encourage us to listen to their stories. Ever graceful and energetic, forceful and dynamic they have taught us to pursue our dreams aggressively.
