I’m Divya…Welcome! I’m an artist, teacher, baker, amateur photographer, blogger in the hope to be many more things.
If you’re reading this you probably know what this blog is all about….a humble effort to share my love for Art, Travel & Food. In the quest to maintain an online diary, I previously had three blogs (for travel, food & art aka The Travel Bug Bit me, 1 part ingredient 9 parts love & Divya’s Art Room) which as you can imagine, proved to be rather cumbersome. Now, they’re all under of the same platform, www.divyadeepakrao.com
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
– Thomas Merton
I’m an artist by profession and Divya’s Art Room was born in 2010.Teaching art and craft at home & online to people passionate about the same is basically what I do. My artsy, craftsy endeavours will all be here and I’m eager to find out what you think!
“A party without a cake is just a meeting.”
– Julia Child
My love for food and desserts to be specific, has resulted in Baking as another hobby that I have been pursuing for some time now. I’m an amateaur baker, cake decorator and an avid learner. In this blog, you’ll find my experiments as well as treasured family recipes from my South Indian kitchen that are responsible for a significant portion of my childhood memories. My recipes are all Vegetarian & Egg free(unless otherwise specified). I do hope you try these recipes & enjoy them as much as we do.
I’ve always been a big fan of caking/cake decorating and I think I owe that to my artsy background. Recent classes with Wilton have helped me get so much more organised.

“Travel makes one modest, You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world”
– Gustave Flaubert
My travel journal is a humble effort to share our very precious experiences while exploring new places and learning about them. I have to say, I wasn’t much of a travelling fan for about 25 years of my life. I was more than happy to stay in the comforts of my home. But, marriage & my better half, Deepak, changed me and I can’t thank my husband enough for this Now,I can’t wait to see the world!Every place teaches us something, every place gives us an experience we can’t forget and that’s how this blog was born.
The husband and I are also avid photographers and we try to make beautiful postcards with the help of our Canon DSLR.
