“You can say so much through photography. I love how light interacts with a subject and can make something ordinary look extraordinary. I enjoy capturing candid magical moments. I love that with our photographs we can tell stories. I love bringing a smile on people’s faces as much as I love to create an emotive photograph that is melancholy and deeply moving. If I can stir up an emotion within people through my photography nothing can be more satisfying. Photography has immensely changed the way I look at the world. It is something that I enjoy very much and it’s almost like a meditative and therapeutic process for me.”
Swati is also a watercolour artist. She has always loved art and drawing since her childhood. She is a nature lover and enjoys painting baby animals & birds. Nature with its beautiful trees, flowers, animals, birds, mountains, lakes and oceans inspires her. She absolutely adores children. Her drawings are emotive and cute. Children and adults both love her art.
“What I love about watercolour as a medium is that it has its very soft and delicate aesthetics. How water moves and interacts with paint; the fluid and unpredictable nature of both, like you never know how the painting is going to turn out. It is like finding a wonderful surprise at the end of the process. That is what is so beautiful and enjoyable to me.”
