After acquiring a business degree in India, Shalini studied Graphic Design at Nottingham Trent University where she graduated with First Class Honours. During her time there, Shalini won numerous National Design awards including the prestigious D&AD (British Design and Art Direction) award and the Society of Typographic Designers Award. After a successful career in online media and design, Shalini now pursues numerous creative endeavours out of her Ealing Studio.
Shalini describes herself as a ‘Creative Experimentalist.’ She says, ‘I like to be uninhibited when in the creative process. For me creativity is a journey of experimentation and exploration. The process is as important as the end result. Whether it’s painting, digital design or jewellery making, I rarely start with a preconceived idea. I like to see where the material and momentum take me. Ironically this freedom of process often results in a very well considered and deliberate looking end product.”
Shalini enjoys using water colour, charcoal, ink, acrylic, clay and digital media often combining different techniques to create visual layering effects in her work.
Shalini has exhibited at various group shows in India and the UK. Her work has been featured at the National Drawing Exhibition, organised by the All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society New Delhi and in London galleries in Mayfair and Greenwich. Her paintings form part of various private collections in India and the UK.
Shalini runs a successful jewellery design business, organises interesting art projects for children and takes commissions for fine art and digital work.
