About Urvashi Sharma

I am a full-time doctor at the Emergency Department at the Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Referral Hospital in Thimphu. Born and brought up in Thimphu, I was introduced to art by enthusiastic friends in high school who also encouraged me to join VAST Bhutan. It was there that I discovered the joy that creating brought.

As an artist I call myself reliably erratic. I can go months without creating a piece and one day I’ll decide to start and not move from my spot until I am surprised at how much  I have painted.

I love experimenting and combining mediums but my all-time favourite is watercolor. The vibrant colors and the uniqueness of most things Bhutanese are elements that I try to incorporate in most of my artworks but ever so often, I like to put a spin on them. In the past my works have been exhibited at the ‘Her Expression’ exhibitions organized by VAST Bhutan at Thimphu. 

When I am not painting or saving lives, I can be found sweating it out at the gym, writing poems, enjoying my coffee or playing with my dogs.

Born 1987, from Thimphu
