There are no limits to what you can accomplish in this field! I am excited to be a part of Itsy Bitsy’s Design Team. I am so looking forward to sharing some inspirations with you.

Hi, I am Rashida Yusufi from Bengaluru. I am a student pursuing Interior Designing. Art is my obsession and I am a creator by choice.

I am excited to be a part of this amazing team and am looking forward to sharing my creative ideas with you.

Hello everyone, I am Nivisha Jain. Still a student pursuing psychology, fluid art is my new passion. This form of art helped me to remain positive during the lockdown in recent times. What I started as a fun thing to keep myself busy has now become my most loved hobby. Experimenting with fluid art, I discovered how relaxing and soothing it is to play with colours. I tried mixing new mediums on new bases and conducted few online sessions. I called them “fluid art therapy”. I am looking forward to share some inspiring fluid art ideas on the Itsy Bitsy’s blog.

Hello Folks! I am an artist based out of Chennai. After starting out with a career in Commerce, I finally found my calling in arts. Art was something I have always been attracted to right from my childhood. After a course in Arts, I took to it as my full time interest. It’s been a roller coaster ride so far. I like experimenting with different mediums of art for murals, painting, and crafting. I also conduct arts, craft workshops and classes for murals, paintings, decor items etc.

Experimenting with masks is my personal favorite. While I am not crafting or working on art, I love to experiment with cuisines. Glad to be a part of this creative team. See you soon with some inspiring projects.

Hi! I am Kavitha Anand. “Am I just another artist who creates art to get away from reality? No. Art is life. Especially the medium resin and alcohol inks, where they are utterly erratic, mirroring life. The desire to learn this medium struck when I was at the beach, I’ve always loved the ocean and wanted to capture its essence somehow through art. That’s when I came across resin and its fascinating beauty.

My love for vibrant colours made me experiment more and worked my way into creating stunning patterns and abstracts. I love talking about what I do therefore I began conducting workshops. I hope to inspire many people with my story and journey as I was inspired.

Hi everyone, I am VidhuThareja. I am extremely happy to be a part of this talented team. I was born and brought up in Delhi and also completed my studies there.

At this point, I got an opportunity to work with Madura Coats Pvt. Ltd. as a Craft Consultant for their Anchor Thread Craft activities. It gave me immense confidence and a feeling of fulfilment. It actually brought out the hidden crafter in me. I have been interested in crafts since my childhood but the thread craft workshops truly inspired me to start doing DIY activities and explore more crafting techniques. This is when, I came to know about Itsy Bitsy and since then there has been no looking back. Today, I am doing what I really wanted to do. Although every new technique and art form attracts me, but Decoupage and Sospeso are my favourites. I believe, learning never stops and so I welcome every opportunity as a path to learn something new.

Hi Ankita here! For me painting is just another way of keeping my diary. I was fond of drawing since childhood. Colours always mesmerized me. I believe in the simple philosophy – do what you love and love what you do! When I look at artwork by others I feel the experience isn’t complete until I have made something of my own. Recently I started exploring sculpture painting and I love it. Apart from that I have tried my hands on watercolor, acrylics and charcoal as well. I am excited about sharing my ideas with you on Itsy Bitsy’s blog.

Hey everyone, I am Khushali Shah. Since Childhood, I was always drawn towards making something,. I did not mind, if that meant getting my hands dirty in the mud. Making sculptures of my imaginary friends or scribbling on the walls of my house and being scolded by my mother was a regular feature. It started with creating pieces of artwork as a hobby but soon became something I wanted to do every day. It is this freedom of creative expression that makes me want to indulge in it a little more every day. I am a self taught & trained artist and a crafter and had some formal training only in school. I am a professional tea taster and while tea-tasting is my lifeline, art/craft is my passion. Excited to be here and waiting to share my creative ideas with you.

I also practice calligraphy, scrapbooking, and glass painting, home decor craft etc. I am super excited to be on this team.

I am Devshri Chandrakar aka Shiri, a creative artist who works in a widevariety of medias, including paintings, installations, resin art, most of which exhibit my thematic interest in bright colours, fluidity, organic patterns and mystical concepts.

I try to personify my love for nature by preserving it in resin, making real floral jewellery and decor pieces.

I am also an art instructor and have conducted more than 100 workshops for various mediums in the last two years. Apart from that, I have displayed my work at various exhibitions.

Hello everyone, I am Kasturi and I never believed I was meant for a desk job. So, I decided to quit 9-6 bank job after a couple of months and decided to follow my passion in arts. I am in love with all things floral – designs and patterns. Watercolor is my favorite medium and I am fascinated about minimalistic. With limited adjectives, my work is best described as vibrant, floral and vivid. I undertake painting workshops and classes – both online and offline along with customized art works, selling paintings and digital prints. I love teaching basic, intermediate and advance level paintings.

If not sipping coffee or playing with my daughter, you’d find me drawing and doodling in one of my numerous diaries.
