About Srimati's Art
All of Srimati's paintings are inspired by Divine Femininity and her experiences in self-realization as a biological woman. Themes in her art, books, and writing include motherhood, Divine Union in sacred marriage, menstruation and womb connection, yoni steaming, Feminine potency, Feminine wisdom, and Divine Feminine awakening. The Goddess is woven into each piece of art she creates. Her art style is whimsical and playful, embuing rich color and expressive depth.
Srimati uses acrylics, watercolors, and gouache paint on canvas and fine art paper. She also utilizes pen and ink and digital illustration for the creation of her coloring book art.
