My name is Svara Shah and currently, my favorite medium is acrylic painting because I love how it gives me the freedom to paint as intricately or loosely as I choose. Painting allows me to freely express my ideas through my artwork. I live in Irvine with my parents and younger sister. I am an Indian American girl, and I often share this heritage through my artwork.
I came to OCSA because I had always loved creating art as a young girl, so when I heard about OCSA and visited the campus, I became excited for the possibility of attending such a school because of the dedicated time I would have to create art. I was also amazed by the artwork from an exhibit I saw in the VAC and hoped to develop the skills to create that is meaningful to me.
While I don't plan to pursue art in college, I hope to continue painting and even selling my artwork or teaching art to young children.
