Art is therapy for HSR layout resident

Shail Pandey (59), a resident of HSR Layout is a dedicated artist. She uses various mediums like charcoal, acrylic, water colour, beads, etc to create paintings, sketches, collages, and even cushion covers and throws. New to Bangalore (she moved here last year after having spent 35 years in Mumbai), she finds the city laid back, and the people friendly and easy going. The only thing that puts her off are the auto rickshaws , who she finds rude and uninterested in work.

Diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease a decade back, she finds a creative outlet in painting. She has also been involved with the Parkinson’s Disease Society of Karnataka. Part of the proceeds from her art goes to this advocacy and support group for people with Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative disorder of the nervous system. Inspite of the disease affecting motor skills, Shail keeps herself active and busy with her art and the many new friends she has made here!
