Welcome to the Noctiluna site, I am Chitra Sharma, designer, screenprinter, teacher.
I studied Textile Design at Central St Martins, and the Winchester School of Art in the UK, and trained to be an art educator at The Institute Of Education – The University of London.
Now I’m based in the USA, and run my own company.
- I design and screen print a range of products for kids that I sell locally and online (see below).
- I conduct Visual Arts summer camps in the Vienna VA area. This program includes internships for high school students.
- I continue my own personal art practice in acrylic painting, printmaking, drawing, and fibre arts.
The main idea is that I continue to create, and through this, spur others to do the same. I hope very much that my passion for the Arts has a positive and lasting effect on those with whom I interact with through my teaching.
