Ashish has had exhibitions in India and is also a well known artist here in Southern California. Only recently has she opened up to the possibility of selling some prints of her artwork; “Money was never a motivation or intention or the incentive to do this,” she quips. “The Journey with Ganesh continues,’’ she says as if in a trance getting inspired for the next sketch tomorrow.
