Hi there, I am Anuja Aggarwal. I am an artist residing in Jaipur, India. Although I have been painting since childhood, I started my professional art journey in 2019. Currently, the medium I am spending most of my time on is Alcohol Inks, but I also work with watercolors, acrylic colors, gouache, and mixed mediums. Here are some snippets of my achievements since I started and things that I am most grateful for. Thank you so much for spending time on my website and supporting my work.
