Hemali comes from an unlikely background of computer programming with graduation in Computer Engineering from University of Mumbai. Her creative inclinations lead her to pursue post graduation in Animation Design from IDC, IIT Bombay. Exposure to the paintings of classical masters there inspired her to travel to Italy to study classical realism at Ateliers in Florence. After her enriching stint abroad, she traveled to study classical art for a semester at Grand Central Atelier in New York. Her training and journeys have broadened her understanding of life, art and cultures. She loves to travel, meet new people and collaborate with them to infuse their distinct cultural heritage in her Art. But she remains connected to her roots in India. She volunteers with an NGO to empower underprivileged women in India. 

At the moment she is in Gdansk, Poland, working on a fully hand-painted feature length Animation film ‘Loving Vincent’.
