Without a single sound heard or a single word spoken, she portrays her understanding of this world through the volume of her art. Her creativity is a derivative of her experiences over the last 33 years. She is a self-taught artist who found the best company around watercolours and canvases. She loves to work on and specialises in contemporary, modern and deconstructive pieces that area a tidal wave of simulation for any art connoisseur Sethi realised her love for art at the young age of 19. And after more than three decades of learning through experience, she has metamorphosed her art into brilliant pieces of collectibles that are valued more than the price they carry.
