Artist, musician and world traveler Sanje Elliott has been practicing the art of Tibetan Thangka paintings since his conversion to Buddhism.

The detail-oriented process itself is also a form of meditation, accompanied by prayer. Sanje also practices various forms of calligraphy and performs publicly on piano and saxophone.
