"Art transports me to another world - a world of joy, peace, dreams and fantasies."
"Hi, my name is Tanisha from Delhi, and my father is also an artist and one of my biggest influences. As a child I grew up watching the beautiful paintings my father created and how he would bring life to a painting through the colors he chose. It was so mesmerizing for me to witness his work. Slowly but surely, my natural affinity towards art strengthened. Now, it has become my goal to fulfill my father’s dream and become a well known, recognized artist.
"Even as a kid I participated in drawing and painting competitions and won quite a few of them. I love working with bright colors.
"After completing my 12th standard I got in touch with a great artist, my guru and Novica featured artist, Sunil Jaiswal. He has guided me and supported me, and I am so thankful to him for introducing me to Novica.
"My urge to painting was too strong that I decided to do my college via correspondence while I pursue my art full time. I love painting so much that I can sit for hours until I feel I have achieved perfection in my work. I would often get scolded by my parents for working non-stop, but such is my passion for art. Painting gives me happiness and ultimate bliss in life. When I am painting time flies like magic. I am so glad that I knew my calling; this is where I belong. Art transports me to another world - a world of joy, peace, dreams and fantasies.
"I work mostly with oils, acrylics, charcoal, soft pastels, watercolors, and mix media though oils, charcoal and acrylics are my favorite.
"My father is my strength and inspiration. He has guided, supported and advised me in the field of arts. What I am today is all because of him. All my success and recognition wouldn't be possible without him. I hope Novica customers like and appreciate my work."
