SiriKartar was born in Rome, Italy. She remembers her childhood days filled with singing, dreaming, but most of all of drawing and painting. "At the age of six I wanted to have my own art studio. In our apartment in Rome, my mother cleared out a tiny closet and in it arranged a table and a chair to support my creative urge. This was my first Studiolo, where I would spend many quiet hours filled with colors and imagination"
