Kavita Maharaj is an internationally acclaimed fine artist. She has been drawing and creating pieces with acrylic, graphite, watercolour pencils, inks and markers for over 30 years. After selling her first piece at the age of 14, her talent was publicly recognized and Kavita has worked to enhance it ever since.

The series is officially licensed by CBS and has been praised by the Nimoy family. The works can be found in homes and galleries in Canada, the U.S., Australia, Finland, Scotland, England, Germany and Costa Rica.
