Founder & Creative Director

Being an educator and a mother myself, I strongly believe in power of creative learnings, especially in today’s digital world, where attention span is defined by the length of YouTube videos and creativity by the chat box emoji icons. I promise that taking a moment and getting in tune with your inner self needs a head space and holding a paint brush in your hand can be that magic wand for many.
