Chandni Patel was born in the State of Gujarat, India. She celebrated her first birthday in Dubai with her family and has called it ‘home’ ever since. She graduated from the American University in Dubai with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in interior design.
She discovered her passion for art when she began exploring various mediums, such as, resin, acrylics and watercolors. Mixed media art became her preferred method of expression.
“I am mesmerized by the beauty of nature, it can be manipulated but never fully controlled. I find that resin has a similar organic quality and a mind of its own, which I have fallen in love with,” says the artist.
During a trip to Sri Lanka, Chandni was exposed to a variety of gemstones which inspired her to create the semi-precious gemstone collection. The idea to truly appreciate a perfectly mined stone from the depths of the earth was what sparked the initial concept. She handpicks the loose stones and then designs the appropriate silver setting. Her artwork is adorned with gemstones and a variety of crystals.
The details are her favorite part of the process where she carefully adds in line work using alcohol inks & paint pens. The final touch is added by using genuine 23 karat gold leaf.
Chandni’s art is a collaboration of various mediums which create a vibrant symphony of colors & textures.
