Smt. Hema Kannan

Founder of the Lotus Shakti, India

A few years ago, Hema Kannan began a journey involving an evergreen South Indian art form: Kolams. In the process of saving this cultural landmark from obscurity, she began sharing her love for this artform by organizing kolam workshops, and welcoming anyone and everyone who was willing to let her take them on this journey towards self-expression.
