JAG Featured Member Artist
Velour is a holistic artist. She is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and professional ballroom dancer who uses visual art pieces to bring lively colors to her music and dance. She has been creating art since she was a toddler on the white walls of her parent's home. Her parents never re-painted the walls and always proudly showcased her wall doodles. As she grew older, she began painting the songs she wrote. Each of her paintings are based on a song; every painting has a story. Before moving to the United States at age 12, she studied 'Bharat Natyam,’ an ancient classical dance form in India whose traces can be found in the 2nd century CE. She also trained in Indian classical music and began playing the harmonium (an instrument similar to the piano) at age 4. She has performed in numerous venues in different cities, connecting with people through her artistry.
Blind bird is a painting based on a song about conquering one's fears.
Blooming strings is a painting based on a song about love that grows and nourishes one's soul.
Mi Amor is a painting that shows a water body and a fire body. Both elements are necessary for life and growth.
Kusum was a tribute to Velour's Grandma named Kusum. The original work is not for sale. But the art prints can be purchased, which capture Kusum's story well. The prints showcase Kusum's beaded necklaces that were handmade with Kusum's favorite flowers - the lotus.
