My name is Kety Bagwalla and I am a lover of art in any form. I paint from the heart. My passion for painting on silk, which I have practiced for over a couple of decades, often carries over to other mediums of art, and I never miss an opportunity to experiment with these mediums, as can be seen from the offerings on my website.
Pick exquisite hand painted art from my exclusive collection for any occasion, whether it is for a birthday, graduation, Mother’s Day, house warming. Just stop by, browse and take your pick. As simple as that.
I studied this beautiful art of painting on silk at the Dubai International College of Arts in the Middle East. Though I am passionate about art in any form and always eager to learn and experiment with different kinds of medium, the art that really captured me is painting on silk. If you are here, I welcome you and would urge you to make your visit to my website an extensive one, to take in the hues, colors and creations that you will see on all the pages. As all art is, this is one-of-a-kind, never to be replicated.
If you own one of my art pieces, be it a hand painted scarf, a wearable, a framed painting for the wall or a home decor piece, you will be the sole owner, never to see this creation on any other person or in any other home. Needless to say, my art has found homes all over and it is a joy to see my unique hand painted art being worn and commented upon.
