About me and my journey

I’m Nahid – an artist from Chennai, India who is keen into watercolors and anything that involves the right hemisphere of the brain. Initially I was drawn to realism and was practicing it via pencil/charcoal portraits. Since a few months back, I’ve been keen on learning Impressionism and practicing it as well. I’m self-taught with a constant thirst for knowledge and learning different ways to approach a single subject.

My qualification and experience

I’m an Engineer by qualification – Since childhood I was fascinated by colors, I used to spend most of my free time sketching and painting, to the point that colors were engraved in my heart & soul. I made a life changing decision in 2019, I gave up my lucrative job and devote myself to pursue my passion, and my life has been a symphony of colors since then. I’ve also participated in a few exhibitions internationally and my works have exhibited.

My learning and contribution

I insist on limited supplies and later expanding the horizon. I conduct classes whenever I can. I’m excited to work along with Ayush papers in a very enterprising and beautiful initiative – to conduct workshops. Art is for everyone!
