Nayana Is…


Nayana Jha

Nayana Design Studio:  Contemporary + Spiritual art with tribal global whimsy.

Nayana Jha grew up all over the wide American landscape but has maintained an intimate connection to her homeland of India through her artwork. She has been painting for over 30 years, with a passion of vibrant color that spans back to her early childhood. 

Skilled in watercolor, ink, charcoal, and calligraphy, she has transformed her passion for painting into a design studio. Her paintings have garnered a loyal following in New York City and around the globe.  Her work has recently expanded into logo design (SEWA a South Asian women’s non-profit, and HibbaNYC, one of NYC’s leading “green” salons in Tribeca).

She graduated cum laude from Wellesley College with a degree in Economics and International Relations, and worked on Wall Street for nearly a decade covering major Fortune 500 media/entertainment companies at JPMorgan and BNP Paribas. She was also part of the Treasury team at Time Warner Cable working with senior management, and most recently spent time in NYC’s start-up world, as CFO of a emerging online company.

Nayana brings a dynamic and spirited perspective devoted to quality and beauty to both her art and her business worlds!
