An interesting approach to creating illustrations, Osheen Siva finds inspiration in her own thoughts, dreams and even nightmares. Unique and quirky colour combinations and a distinctive style can be seen in all her artworks.
Luckily, Osheen Siva shifted back to Goa from Delhi just before the lockdown and currently engaging herself in embracing the sunsets on beaches as well as creating illustrations. Her way of coping up in quarantine is to put on her earphones, listen to podcasts and sketch simultaneously. To reduce the amount of stress and anxiety, she prepares proper schedules, however, the minute they may be.
Going back to the traditional method of sketching, she has been expanding her sketchbook practices and trying out mediums like acrylic and oil on canvas. Pushing her boundaries even further, Osheen has been taking up online animation and inking classes which she finds extremely engaging. Apart from using her time wisely to sketch and create unique artworks, she has been loving the practice of cooking all her meals and keeping up with her loved ones.
As an artist, Osheen has an interesting take on the future for designers and people in the creative eld. She feels that the creative industry is going to be much more collaborative post the pandemic, with more opportunities for shifting the work culture remotely and perhaps delving deeper into the virtual space
