Vaishali, a student pursuing Bachelor's in Computer Science from DU is an artist who loves to express thoughts and imaginations through a mandala art form. A self-taught artist and have been inclined towards artwork for a long time where most of them are created out of her imagination. She has featured her artworks on social media which gained a massive response, and finally got inspired enough to be a registered seller on Etsy. Apart from making mandala arts, my interest also lies in doodling, string arts, and painting. I take a huge interest in knowing about different cultures and their traditions and I think that’s what inspires me to meet new people, know about their culture, food, customs, art, language and many other things.
