“I create in charcoals, fluid art, acrylics and decoupage. I am a Certified Zentangle artist,” Shah states. “I love to read, travel, and create.”


Presenting at the show is one of her first loves. In Sanskrit, mandala means both circle and center, implying that it represents both the visible world around us and the invisible one, deep inside our minds and bodies. Mandalas are used in various cultures as a symbol for meditation, protection, positive vibes, and spiritual upliftment.


The habit of creating and collecting mandalas is a transformative practice that is intended to restore inner peace and wisdom within.

The belief is that by entering the mandala and proceeding towards its center, you are guided through the cosmic process of transforming the universe from one of suffering into one of joy and happiness.


Payal Shah was raised in Mumbai, India and lives in Westchester now. She is a trained artist. Having studied Interior Design and Decoration in Mumbai and Visual Arts in New York, she found the perfect amalgamation of her talent and passion by customizing paintings to enhance residential and commercial spaces.


She is the co-founder and partner at Artezvous, an India based art company that provides a platform for upcoming and established artists to display and sell their artwork.
