Akshata has completed her fine arts in textile design from sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai.
Akshata’s passion for painting landscapes and observational drawings around nature found expression in the medium of Tapestry weaving, which she calls painting with yarn.
An attempt to search for a medium beyond the academic textile design subjects, tapestry weaving was an artform that really connected to her way of self expression and thought, that she explored beyond the boundaries of weaving on a handloom. Fascinated by medieval tapestries in the renaissance Europe, Indian & Persian rugs and carpets, the slow process of hand weaving has teached her a lot. Her compositions find inspiration in the forces of nature, which she tries to juxtapose with human experiences and material objects. Intrigued by the process, Akshata continues to find peace and calm in the meditative act of weaving.
