Hi, I'm Shivani 🤍🧚‍♂️ I make art about mystical things, magic, and the invisible realms. I always want to know what's underneath things, like about the energy that powers the natural world. I sometimes think of my work as diagrams, partly because I like to share information I learn from the spiritual realms with people but also because I like the challenge of trying to communicate something quite mysterious in a way that people find accessible and playful. I feel like spirituality can enrich and focus my life and, I feel a strong desire to heal, soothe and energise people through my paintings.
