ABOUT THE ARTIST

wix.jpg

Bangalore based artist, Shikha Garg has been painting and experimenting with watercolor since the past several years. Originally a Visual Communication Designer she worked with several design and advertising agencies since 1999 till she founded her own design company midniteOil Design in 2005. She worked for the next 10 years with clients across the globe honing her design and marketing skills in the process. In 2014, while on a sabbatical she took, to spend time with her twin daughters, Shikha re-discovered her passion for fine art and started painting in Oil and Acrylics first. But exploring and falling in love with Watercolor as a medium was a wonderous and serendipitous journey of self discovery. An avid traveler Shikha loves exploring new places with her family and translates her experiences visually through her art. Nature and different cultures inspire her. She now combines her design and entrepreneurial skills with her passion for watercolor painting and for teaching art. She is now hoping to spread her love and enthusiasm for this medium to more and more people!
