Sandhya’s journey in this world, and in the world of art, began in the foothills of the Himalayas, in the Dehradun valley, India. It was perhaps the serene surroundings, besides something special within, that created an instant bond between her and the magnificence of colours and hues around her. The bond and the urge to recreate some of the magic of Nature, manifested with early experimentation through lines and colours on walls and floors. The urge only grew more intense with time, and so did her expressions and experimentation, albeit, with more formal media, methods and training.
Her formal grounding in art can be traced to two of the most famous schools in India, Shantiniketan and Baroda (now Vadodara). She walked her early formal paces in art under the guidance of Dr. Dwijen Sen, a disciple of the renowned artist of Shantinikatan, Nandlal Bose. Her formal exposure to art was rounded off for her under the tutelage of Proffesor Ranbir Saxena, a well known landscape artist and a student of Bendre. These formal endeavours culminated in 1977, when she earned a Masters in Fine Arts.
But, that culmination was only to formal learning. She never stopped at that, and neither did she permit the formalism of structured education to constrain her creativity and urge to break new grounds.
She has nearly fifty years of professional experience behind her, rubbing shoulders with some of the top contemporary painters of her times.
She believes in art working for upliftment of humanity in general and likes her art to spread a sense of positivity, harmony and happiness across the globe.
She is internationally recognised for creating a unique style, Rythmism in contemporary arts. She uses this style to bring to life, on her canvas, a range of subjects, from music and dance, landscapes and mindscapes, poetry and prose, culture and thoughts, universe and the inner mind etc.
She has a unique talent of engaging with her audience, even while painting on the spot. She did that with success with ICCR, at the Global Exhibition on Services in 2016, inaugurated by the Indian Prime Ministeri.
She has represented art at a number of international fora, in the UK and also as far afield as the US, Middle East, North Africa and Asia.
She has been contributing towards happiness and well being of humanity in general through the universal language of visual arts on her canvas. She has also been spreading the message through talks and interactions at various fora.
Her works has been greatly appreciated by critics and general audiences alike, including a number of senior and well acclaimed personalities in art and literature.
