Founder & Admin


Hi ! My name is Priya and I live in Thane, India with my loving husband and our seven year old son. I started crafting some years back but I came into this magical world of mixed media about a year and half back. I adore  making Scrapbook layouts, altered art and mixed media. I do not have a particular style and  like to experiment with different techniques and products.

 Co-Founder & Admin

I am Priyanka Srivastava. I am an Astronomer and I did my Masters in Space Sciences from the University of Pune. I worked as a Science and Astronomy Communicator and Educator as well as Content Developer in Delhi for about 4 years. Currently, I stay in Mumbai and I am a Senior Physics Teacher at an ICSE school here. My hobbies include reading (mostly English and Science fiction), dancing, visiting new places and adventure sports. Frankly, I love to try my hand at anything new and challenging.
Since childhood, I had an affinity towards craft and one of my favourite classes during my school days were Art and Craft and SUPW where I learned so many new forms of arts like glass painting, emboss painting, embroidery, sewing, crotchet etc. I have always liked to give my creations to my friends and family as a token of love since I was in school. A couple of years back I got to know about Quilling and I bought a small simple kit to try my hand on it. I instantly fell in love with it. A few of my friends saw some of my creations and expressed their desire to buy them. Their suggestions and a long duration of pondering over it resulted in "Priyaz Creations" coming into existence. I started with sharing and showcasing my love for quilling via my blog. But slowly from there, I met so many talented artists; I got motivated to learn some more paper crafts like decoupage, mixed media etc. and learned a great deal about these crafting techniques.
I am still learning and I have a long way to go on this amazing journey. I am honored to be a part of the team of Mixed Media Challenge and I am sure my learning will be immense with my amazing and awesome fellow team members. I hope I will be able to play any part in motivating someone out there to try their hands on this lovely art form of Mixed Media!
