BiographyBorn in India,Shikha has been painting since the past 11 years. From early childhood Shikha learnt various techniques of painting like silk painting, henna art, charcoal sketching, acrylic, water color on paper and oil on canvas. Shikha learnt water color, acrylic and oil painting from a private instructor for 6 years and had her first exhibition in Rajasthan, India in 2003. After marriage Shikha has now moved to Seattle, USA. Her main sources of inspiration are Vijendra Sharma, Ajay Garg and Pino. She produces remarkable works in scale, color, and detail depicting with exquisite detail the traditional Hindu myths and everyday life of her country using watercolor, and gold paint on paper. Not lost in the technical proficiency is the life of her scenes: the tenderness of lovers in Radha and Krishna in Love; royal elephants, beautiful birds and the inner strengths of a women. Her private collections of paintings are across India, USA, and Singapore.
