Remembering through Art and Storytelling

Alyen of the Lepcha tribe from the foothills of the Himalayas shares with us her journey of reconnecting to her roots through Textile Art and Storytelling.

Alyen Leeachum Foning is an artist who uses her art medium to connect with her ancestral roots. She is a textile artist who has studied Textile and Apparel design at National Institute of Design, India. Her works are inspired by nature & indigenous world cultures.

Alyen feels deeply for fabrics, colors, collaboration with people, art, crafts, design & music in all forms. She is currently learning about her ancestral roots and shamanism through various research and art projects/grants, and is in the process of starting her training under a shaman of the Lepcha tribe.
