Soaring High – Difficult Times. Explore the art and poetry of Vijaya Sen as she navigates her way through life while recovering her mental health.
I’ve been drawing and doing art since a very young age and Mum kept these drawings since I was three. I also have been interested in language and writing too including writing journals and illustrating. My interests have been very encouraged by my family and teachers. I have a cv of fourteen solo shows. I have a bachelor of visual arts degree from ANU.
It’s been a lifelong devoted practice and I’ve been known for my talent since preschool in Lyons Canberra ACT and in India where we travelled to where my father came from. In addition, I have a vast knowledge of art history encouraged by my Dad. So my artistic upbringing and vocation is a very real and God-given blessing inherited by my Dad and my gift in language both from my Mum and Dad.
My Mum is an English teacher and book reviewer, my Dad an art critic and scholar with Asian studies degree and a tour guide at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. I am carrying on the legacy and knowledge I studied learned and was encouraged in by my parents. With my life journey much of my art has played an enormous part in my growth and spiritual happiness and humility, peace, and understanding of life.
The devotion to my art and language, I believe, deserves credit, particularly by the learned, the educated and the young and playful at heart.
