Hi, I'm Shashini Weerakoon, from the beautiful hill capital in Sri Lanka known as "Kandy". I moved to Nelson in 2018 and this beautiful town has been my home ever since. The art I create is inspired by an ancient Sri Lankan art form which can be found in many historic murals and wood carvings. The town I grew up in has many heritage sites full of breathtaking art and I have always been fascinated by these amazing shapes and colors in them. When I was 3-4 years old, I started drawing different styles of art and have never stopped since then. My passion is to blend these ancient art forms with modern art and create something new. Hope you enjoy this unique art style.
