An Engineer by profession and working as an IT Professional in Melbourne, Vidya treated Art as a form of a creative outlet, which she used as a conduit to broaden her vision of the world and her compassion to nature. At a tender age, she was inspired by her mother who painted traditional art forms, thereby introducing her to the beautiful world of art. Supported by her family, Vidya gradually developed a passion for the meditative art of painting and grew a penchant for the self-discovery that it brings. Her quest to explore the world around her, also made her take up Photography, thereby widening her kaleidoscopic view. Passion developed into talent and talent was forayed on canvas resulting in, a collection of over 70 Paintings over the span of 10 years – through the eyes of Vidya signed Nethra meaning “Eyes”.
