Hemu was born in India, earned her MFA in graphic design in New York and worked for over 40 years, including running her firm in graphic design. Her portfolio includes album covers for several significant pops and Hip-Hop artists such as The Beatles, Tom Jones, Mantovani, Quincy Jones, John Lennon, and Yoko Ono, Ritchie Valance, Aretha Franklin and rap artists including Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Sugarhill Gang, Positive Force, Crash Crew. She now resides in Petaluma.

Artist’s statement: "It’s hard to explain why I paint or what inspires me. I have a thousand ideas in my head, and I am constantly experimenting with different subjects, styles, and techniques. There is so much more out there in the world that I long to explore. Sometimes I surprise myself when I can convert my imagination into two-dimensional art. My passion is in creating various textures and then painting with Acrylic colors over the rough surfaces or experimenting with various tools and filters in digital technique. My style includes contemporary realism and abstract expressionism."
