Chaanda is a self-taught artist whose been creating all her life. She began painting abstract art in the summer of 2004 when she moved into her first home and needed artwork for her walls but had little money to buy it. It came very natural to her and she discovered it was very gratifying. However, because of her career she was forced to put the paintbrush aside. But after three years of major pregnancy health issues, she found herself in a very dark place. She needed desperately to revitalize and so she began to paint again in the summer of 2007 for therapeutic purposes. She fell in love! It is now her passion, her outlet, her life.
