Bio

Swati Soni was born and brought up in India. She has been passionate about all kind of arts since the her childhood. However, lack of guidance made her follow the conventional path and she drifted towards science. After earning a Bachelor of Engineering in computer science in 2007, she decided to pursue her passion in art. Her very first experiments in paintings were reproduction of some famous portraits and landscapes using oil colors on canvas.

She got married in 2009 and arrived in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in 2010. These days, her work with acrylic on canvas is inspired by the beauty of Canadian autumn. She also loves to experiment with new fun techniques to paint. In her recent works, she paints with her fingertips and this style can be categorized as pointillism.

At the nascent stage of her career, she remains self-taught in art. Her first major juried show was Box 11 Art Show (November, 2011) in Kitchener-Waterloo area where she received marvellous response from people and sold out everything on the first night of the show.
