About

Philosophy

ArtCircle Studio believes art is an immense medium for expression as well as for healing. Art streams from the depth within us, enabling our expression beyond words. It soothes our souls by providing an outlet for creativity, emotions and thoughts uniquely for every individual. It is a great equalizer as it allows sharing of perceptions and views from individual vantage points, which others might have missed or have seen from a different world view.

Deepti is particularly interested in creations that remind us of encounters of nature's beauty and joy at our steps, generously available to those who care to observe and appreciate. Light intrigues her as an artist for its potential to create drama in any art work. Art has often been a meditative experience for her.
