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.
