Ph.D. in Fine Art

Hi, I am an Artist Shikha in Fine Art Painting. Being a Ph.D. holder in Drawing and Painting, I don’t know why I’m an artist, but I should say art is in my blood. I eat, sleep, and dream in the art world. I am improving myself every day. It is an endless journey. You keep on learning if you have dedication and eagerness to learn. I believe in God and God also believes in me. In my view, the right people get the right opportunities.

If an artist experiments, it opens varied horizons for him/her and thus the best of the work comes out.
