Her works speak of some moments and some glimpses from life, some beautiful memories and feelings. These moments might not be eventful happenings but significant moments that make life colorful and cheerful and sharpen your sensibility. And that is possible with children or people who see life with a child`s eye. The joy of creating a mud house for a child is as good as making his own house decorated with cloth flags, twigs and flowers!
The pleasant amalgamation of the aesthetics of these moments and the various forms, textures and colors create a fairy tale and a kaleidoscopic world in Shefali`s works. The artist lives and works in Ahmedabad.
