“Art is a foundational part of my life, and I try to spend my free time experimenting with it. I express my gratitude, emotions, and admiration for nature and Mother Earth through colors. My inspiration comes from the many sources: places I travel to, nature, architecture, city life, folk art, Indian culture, and the people around me,” says Ms. Soni. “I love to capture special moments with various mediums. The creative process gives me tremendous joy, satisfaction, and a sense of great accomplishment, and I hope this beautiful journey of self-discovery continues forever.”
