Art that Connects You to the Fabric of the Universe

Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo is a contemporary American textile artist, teacher, and caretaker of a sacred Tibetan tradition.

In her fabric thangkas, the sacred Buddhist images of Tibetan thangka paintings are rendered in vivid mosaics of silk. Intricately layered and hand-stitched, these brilliantly colored works of Tibetan appliqué art inspire the heart and fascinate the eye.

We invite you to discover the beauty of this little-known Buddhist art form by exploring these pages.

Commission a silk thangka stitched especially for you or purchase original artwork and print reproductions.

Learn to make YOUR art a sacred practice through Leslie’s online teaching programs.

Delve into tradition. Let the threads engage your senses and awaken your heart!
