About the Instructor (in their own words)

I am Shivani, founder of HueCoast. I started HueCoast in May 2019 as a creative dream which turned into a design destiny and made me leave my corporate job. Now, each and every piece in my shop is a masterpiece in itself and my fascinating designs. I started working as a entrepreneur and now have many great artisans working with me.
