About Artist

There is a sense of joy and fulfillment in creating something new everyday! This feeling drives me to paint and to create something everyday. I am a self- taught artist. I worked for few years in the field of Fashion buying and while working I was pursuing art as a passionate hobby. It was during those years I realized that art was my calling! Though I have always been painting and drawing but it was only few years back that I took my passion for art more ardently. I draw inspiration from all around me especially nature and wildlife. I usually work with acrylics and watercolors though I love to dabble with different media as well. I also have a passion for gilding that drove me to learn the famous Tanjore art from SOuth India. I create small fusion peices using Tanjore art techniques so that they can fit in a modern household as well. I am a mother to a 6 year old boy who keeps showing me how colourful the world is through his eyes. I share my art with people through my art page ‘Art Hues by Mrinalini’ available on facebook @ARTHUESIndia and Instagram @mrinalinishingal and my website


    I did my graduation in science from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi followed by an MA in Art conservation from National Museum Delhi and Masters in Fashion Management from NIFT Delhi. I worked as a fashion buyer for few years before moving to being a full-time artist.


    I exhibited my art for the first time at Soul Sante Bangalore last year where my work was well received.
