SiriKartar was born in Rome, Italy. She remembers her childhood days as being filled with singing, dreaming, but most of all of paintings. "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 chair to support my creative urge. This was my first 'Studiolo', where I would spend many quiet hours filled with color and imagination."
