Vatsya, in her works, experiments with acrylics, watercolors, drawing inks, pens, brush pens on archival prints. She merges two individual images seamlessly, presenting them as a unified composition while preserving their individuality. Using archival prints for the backdrop, she overlays them with a different composition using watercolours, acrylics, drawing inks, soft pastels, pencil colours, pens and more resulting in captivating illusions. She embarks on a process of layering one composition upon another, each with its unique narrative and unconventional approach, yet ultimately pleasing to the eye. In essence, her paintings embody perfection in imperfection, capturing the essence of artistic spontaneity.

Vatsya lives and works in Baroda, Gujarat, India.
