Hey! I'm Riya, a sophomore at Carroll HS. I was born in the US and brought up in India! When I was 13, I had an impulse to do something different. the virtual schooling option during the pandemic, allowed me to try new things and pick up new hobbies. I loved learning to code, baking, playing badminton, and resining (not to mention the countless hours watching TV and listening to music!
Thanks to my mom, I've been passionate about art since I was little, and over the pandemic, I got a chance to explore and learn about new techniques. I turned my fascination with art into my new venture, KaarigaRiya Crafts. I incorporate various mediums in my art including epoxy resin, wood, canvas, acrylic, glass, and vinyl :)
The name Kaarigariya comes from two parts. Kaarigar meaning an artisan, - and attaching a personal touch of my name Riya, at the end of the brand name. These resin products are completely hand made and cannot be fully duplicated. Making personalized pieces for people makes me so happy because of the value it adds to the gift, whether it be for yourself or a loved one <3
