During the pandemic, Saloni dedicated time to her artwork and began sharing her skills online with immigrant women’s groups, fostering connection, skill-building, and healing through weekly art sessions. She has also conducted numerous in-person workshops for individuals of all ages and backgrounds, inspiring them to incorporate art into their lives.
