Art it is a depiction of meaning that shares revelations, secrets, and the unconcealed through inquisitive gazes and inspired strokes. Art is intimate, communal, and public; it is a private dance and an open conversation. For me, the creative process is reflective, often intuitive, and occasionally emotionally cathartic.
I find inspiration while mulling over social issues, and while contemplating the soul or spirit. Images from nature figure prominently in my work, as do reflections and concepts from meditation.
Peace. Love. Pranam to you all. Xo

About the Artist
Eppi Sukhu is a self-taught artist who creates art inspired by spirituality, meditation, and social justice. Eppi uses acrylic paint, photography, mixed media, and digital techniques to create artwork. You can explore her sketchbook, "Northeast" at the Brooklyn Art Library under call number 225.9-3.
Eppi received some arts training before her 19th year of age. She was accepted into design arts school after completing a bachelor's degree in the sciences, however, chose to complete a Master of Health Science graduate degree at the University of Toronto in Canada, instead. In this way, her love of social justice and interest in learning the science behind health at the social and environmental levels, was also nourished.
Eppi is also a developmental services advocate for a local non-profit organization, President of Blissful Self Inc., and founder of BlissfulSelf.com. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, meditation, reading philosophy, and studying socio-cultural anthropology. While she travels often, she is very much a homebody. At present, Eppi lives in her hometown where she enjoys the company of loved ones... including her peppy turtles named Oregano, Goldie, Gremlin, and Mogwai, and her rabbits Easter, and Durga Harlequin.
Sadly, Christmas, Eppi's beloved Netherland Dwarf, went over the Rainbow Bridge. He is gone but never forgotten and forever loved.
