Meet the teacher:
Shipra trained for five years at a premier art institute, and has a Degree in Fine Arts and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
She has worked as a visual merchandiser and set designer for many years and has gained extensive experience in store planning and graphic art. Throughout this period, Shipra has continued her love for drawing and watercolor painting.
Over the years her works include detailed watercolor paintings, participating and selling in several exhibitions, doing illustration works and above all conducting workshops and teaching watercolour and botanical art at various institutions.
Her eye for detail and perseverance to translate it into her work has been consistent.
After coming to this beautiful country almost a decade back, she lived in a beautiful townhouse and started painting the beautiful flora and fauna around her.
This, combined with her passion for watercolor painting, gave her the fuel to start her formal training after which she never looked back. Watercolour art is now her zeal and passion.
