The name Aartemisia is derived from the name of the most revered Greek Goddess Artemis. She is Goddess of Nature, Moon, hunt and Birth. And Sanjukta feels  Art symbolized all of these. Thus La Aartemisia was born.

Every new art creation is a form of birth. Art is also akin to nature as it mimics nature by visually replicating the same in varied forms on to the canvas and has always been linked to human concepts. Nature can simply be added on to a painting to create magical depth and perspective.
