About Shalini Advani

I discovered I could draw and paint when I was sixteen years old. The joy of being able to create something so close to my heart was immeasurable. While I have not formally been to art school, I have been trained in abstract arts and processes through attending workshops hosted by artists including James RF Holdsworth from London and David Kelly from Australia. My art is very personal—it depicts the various phases of my life, things that have touched me, and subjects that mean a lot to me. I particularly enjoy processes because I am intrigued by the innovation that results when mediums interact with each other differently.
