ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Richa Kedia is a self-taught artist, illustrator and graphic designer. She is an Engineer by qualification but an artist by passion and profession. She has worked in various corporates, while painting over the weekends but realized that she wanted to do something more meaningful all days a week and not just the weekends. So she quit her corporate job to pursue art and design full time. She is well traveled, well read and has a penchant for nature, wildlife, science and history; thereby rendering multiple dimensions to her art! Also she loves to experiment in various mediums and styles, though rendering birds in watercolors remain as one of her pet projects.
