The desire to learn and expand one’s creative horizons is a very powerful motivating force. Shivani Kohli the founder and talented womanpreneur of the Art Décor enterprise LITTLE THINGS BY SHIVANI – is a real time example of this universal axiom.
Hailing from the historic, holy city of Allahabad, Shivani’s tryst with art started with watercolours and hand lettering, but soon resin art caught her fancy and she started experimenting with it.
During Covid 2020 she moved to Gurgaon for her job and continued dabbling in resin art as a side hustle. Soon however by December 2021 she took the plunge to make art her full time business.
With no formal education in fine arts of any kind, it was only Shivani’s passion for learning that pushed her to explore lessons available on the internet. From creating art with watercolours to challenging and expensive Resin Art; You Tube, Instagram and Pinterest became her teachers. Today this commitment and desire has made her a much sought after artist for Resin Art.
In the creative arts, for an artist, imagination is the only limit….
Every artist is blessed with creativity; how he or she uses it to create art is what makes a difference to the final creation. Having started out in 2020 with a few experiments with the resin art medium, Shivani quickly mastered the technique and started creating pieces that really grabbed the attention of the market.
Gold leaf resin coasters, alcohol ink coasters, vibrant ocean theme wooden tray, elegant tissue boxes and coaster sets, gorgeous serving tray, beautiful resin wall clocks, name plates, stunning trinket trays, resin cake stand with real dried flowers, floral trays, flower preservation in resin, candles and more – all these are in great demand.
Customized bathroom vanity shutters is a product line that is gaining good traction with 3 projects already completed. Recently she she achieved a milestone by making 200 coasters in a span of 5 days for corporate gifting.
For the festive season or for that matter any occasion, there is a range of hand poured scented soy candles in five soothing and calming fragrances that are now available. The range is called “Illuminate” and its one more feather in the cap for the artist in Shivani!
Creating space to grow and achieving a childhood dream is the next milestone to reach…
LITTLE THINGS BY SHIVANI as a brand, is today well accepted for its wide range of innovatively interpreted artefacts and home décor creations. There are about 10 to 12 orders every month being regularly fulfilled for clients, across India and the globe as well. From visualizing to creating and photography to packaging, Shivani works to market and deliver happiness.
“My long term vison is to set up my own art studio where I can experiment and create different art forms. I would also conduct workshops here, to introduce all those interested, to Resin Art and its many possibilities.” Shares Shivani.
For a self-taught artist Shivani has come a long way and the way ahead is definitely to look and encash upon opportunities to grow exponentially.
