Tell us about yourself and your work

Hi, my name is Ruchi Sharma. I am an Indian artist. Most of the artwork is based on traditional Indian Art. I specialize in Madhubani, Kalamkari, Mandalas, and more of such folk arts practised in India. I have recently begun my career in this beautiful world of art.

How did you find out about the tree-free paper that Bluecatpaper makes?

Actually, I mostly work on Traditional Indian Art on handmade paper with natural inks. That’s when I thought about using Tree free paper. I researched and stumbled upon your unique website. I instantly fell in love.

How does Bluecat Paper make your work unique? 

My most of the artworks are done on handmade paper so that’s what makes them unique. I am following my passion without hampering mother nature and doing my bit to save her.

What’s your process like while working on Bluecat Paper’s product?

What advice do you have for artists starting with Bluecat Paper?

I would say do not limit yourself. This paper has a lot to offer. It handles water like a champ. Inks are spread beautifully when used on Bluecat papers. It’s all in one package. I have tried poster Colors, crayons, oil pastels, watercolours and they work like magic on BlueCat papers. I vouch for its texture and thickness. I simply love it and I am sure the other artists like me will surely too.
