Ushma Rathi, a self-taught artist from India, is currently in Canada pursuing her studies in Accounting. Though she is an accountant by profession, she has always been fond of art. She has received immense support from her art teacher and family, which encouraged her to enhance her art skills further. Most of Ushma’s art is influenced by what speaks to her. Nature, birds, colors, techniques or other artist’s work. Furthermore, she works on her art piece until she is fully satisfied.
Throughout her art career, she has worked with various mediums such as pencil, crayons, markers, acrylics and watercolors. All her recent work is based on acrylics. She enjoys learning different techniques from other artists and integrating those with her own style of work. Ushma shares valuable art tips on social media and blogs. She also teaches art individually and in classes with the Michaels art store. She has had opportunities to display her art in various exhibitions organized by VASA, VAB and other organizations.
