Hers is a rare,divine talent that started sparkling when she was all of ten years. She loved to do free hand sketching and could draw caricatures as well as figures with a surprising ease that was captivating and intriguing .Her flair and knack for creative endeavour was relegated to the backseat in the humdrum of schooling and college life and later as she fulfilled her duties as a wife and a mother. It was only after her children grew self dependent that she was encouraged by her eldest sister to pursue her long - lost love since she now had ample time for herself.Her journey into the surreal world of art commenced in the year 2007 with enthusiasm and zeal.
What had once been a source of pleasure, now became a passion with her. Soon, Arti was able to unearth her own potential as an artist.

Her medium is Acrylic on canvas...she conjures an ethereal play of colours on canvas which is closely related to the various hues of life.Close-ups of visages is her forte.

Her ultimate aim is to establish herself in the world of art as an artist of repute so that her work resonates in the echelons of the creative world.
