Pallavi completed her graphic design degree from Symbiosis Institute of Design, Pune. She picked up the paintbrush in class 8th and hasn’t left since then. In Pallavi’s own words - “I believe that art is like a fresh breath of air and a way of self- expression. My work is an expression of my thoughts, my different moods, and a way to help myself connect with people. After conducting 40+ workshops, the one thing I can assure you is that if you're holding a brush for the first time, it won't be the last. You will want to paint again and again.“
