Being expressive has
always been very comforting to me as an individual. I, labdhi strongly believe to share my inner thought of happiness with outside world. For me transforming my thoughts in virtual form of art is blissful. With academic background from Fergusson college Pune and Australian national university, Australia has taught me to be more fragile towards my thoughts and emotions which I can articulate in my work .Also Being an economics and math student never restricted me of being creative. Rather this strategic world has helped me ponder within. Working in an eight hour job has given me more passion to full fill my desire to follow world of imagination. Apart from the management skills my keen interest in philosophy and spiritual disciplines initiated my zest for art.
I am influenced by various form of art and their complexity. Travelling being one of my hobbies, excelled my interest in culture. With constant diligence today I feel my forte at being expressive can only be accomplished with the help of art, which indeed helps me cherish my glory with others!
Dr. Komal Shah, MD
I was born in the beautiful town of Valsad. Since my schooling days at St. Joseph's Convent, I had been an active participant in every occasion where painting was involved. Be it countless Mother's Days and Teacher's Days and many such events, I was always ready with a painting of mine. The same continued when I joined my medical school, NHL Medical College. In the yearly college events held during my pursue of medicine there, at every instance, per say coloring the t-shirts or drawing rangolis, I never let the passion of creativity fade within me.
Today when I am pursuing my post graduate studies in the field of Anesthesia at V S Hospital, that zeal to continue with this form of art is still alive within me as much. I truly believe that each human in this world has this strong connection to at least one form of art or skill and it binds them to one's self when they pursue it deeply. It sort of fulfills the quench of one's soul. For me that's "Painting". It's a part of my existence. An eternal mate in my Pursuit Of Happiness!
Krishna Jani M A English Literature, Content Writer
My name is Krishna Jani and presently I am working as a Content Writer at an e-commerce company called Infibeam. I have passion for drawing/ art/ painting since my childhood and hence I am pursuing this hobby of mine amidst all the busy schedules and dead lines to relax and re-energize myself. I am also greatly fond of nature and therefore, most of my art work is inspired by natural sceneries, animals, birds and the beautiful world around. I enjoy painting animals and birds in their ecological atmosphere the most. Hope my drawings/painting will also have the same tranquilizing and rejuvenating effect on the viewers too as I felt while doing it myself!

Born in the town of JABALPUR (M.P.) where River Narmada flows within very beautiful marble rocks, and state having maximum forest cover and centuries. I was fond of drawing and sketching from my childhood and no wall of my house left cleaned due to this hobby. Later this hobby became passion and I took every festival to make cards charts and posters. I always enjoyed participating in various competitions. I never joined any professional training or classes of paining but this passion towards creativity always remains within me.
This hobby was further got new wings while I perusing engineering and always got excellent marks in engineering drawing. I find this passion is the connection of mine with the nature, and same is nurtured in my daughter and son proved my contention true.
