Gurjinder's "Monsoon Days" (

Gurjinder said she relives her childhood through her statues, which depict joyful scenes from her past, like as playing with mud, making paper-boats, playing on the swings, family gatherings, picnics and traditional festival celebrations.

Her works, such as "Freedom," "Towards Temple," "Monsoon Days," the "Childhood Memories" series and "Mother's Moon," convey love, warmth and delight of life in an unaffected and idyllic way. They reflect the artist's hopes of preserving traditional cultural values, her pursuit of happiness and her thoughts on the social development that is changing so much in both China and India. She also calls for peace and love in some works such as "Goddess of Peace" and "World Peace."

Gurjinder's sculpture works are mostly in cuprine, while her paintings feature harmoniously bright colors. She even boldly blends traditional Chinese elements, such as "one-tile" hair style for kids and Chinese "Qipao" into her works.
