I’m not a portrait artist but I have always had a desire to create portraits without looking at someone else’s work. What I have realized, through practice, is that I can make abstract faces if I move my hands really fast.
And when I couple that speed with a wet-on-wet technique and acrylic inks, it’s free flow magic. I’m serious. The images just seem to emerge from paper and I am surprised each time.
I’m really excited to share this technique with you and looking forward to all the fun, unique and diverse personalities you create. Make sure to sign up for the waitlist here, so you can be the first to know when the class launches.
Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.
Hi there, I am Mansi, a self-taught artist based in Silicon Valley.
I was a full-time communications professional for two decades, with a desk job and a six-figure salary until I decided to become a mom.
Motherhood, as many will attest, can be extremely exhausting, especially in those first years. Art became my quiet place. It restored my sense of self. It gave me renewed energy. It helped me become a better mom.
I was led down the path of creation by instinct and “discovered“ in early 2019 by a fellow kindred spirit at one of my art pop-ups who asked me to join her entrepreneurial venture. While I immersed myself full time in the role of CFO and co-founder of this women-led venture supporting local women makers, I missed experimenting with mixed-media. So, in 2021, I've decided to focus my energies full time in finessing my craft, producing more online tutorials and offering in-person art workshops for both adults and children.
Thank you for joining me on this adventure as I experiment, learn and continue creating custom pieces of joy.
