About Me | Shreya Dalela

My love affair with the arts began in Grade 3.

While other kids played outside, I was captivated by the magic of paintbrush strokes, thanks to painting classes with my mom. The rhythm of classical dance soon followed, and I was hooked.

Always the curious student, I consistently topped my class. This academic drive led me to NIT Silchar, a prestigious engineering college nestled in the serene landscapes of Assam. But amidst the equations and theories, my heart yearned for a different kind of expression.

It was during these college years that I stumbled upon Photoshop. The thrill of transforming ideas into digital designs was exhilarating. This newfound passion birthed ‘Speaking Walls’, where I turned digital dreams into tangible wall art.

Post-college, I stepped into the corporate maze. But just 20 days in, I realized it wasn’t my path. I pivoted to content marketing and freelance, carving a niche for myself in the digital realm.

While my professional journey evolved, I never abandoned my artistic pursuits.

From art journaling and calligraphy to lettering, I dabbled and delighted in them all.

Dance has been another love of mine. From Jazz and Ballet to Contemporary and Heels, I’ve danced it all. I even started ‘She Soulful’, a community where women come together to dance and find balance through Yoga.
