Our Story

I AM THE OCEAN was born from the creative inspiration of Siddhi and A.D Desai‘s passion and appreciation for art in all its majestic forms. The Art Luxury House endeavors to Create Conscious Change in order to create a better future for coexistence.

But I AM THE OCEAN, The Art Luxury House, is not about its two Co-Creators. It is about each individual who shares our vision.

The “I” in our name is not about us, it is about “You.”

You Are The Ocean.

You are the writer of your own story. Make it your own.

Siddhi Desai

She has a deep passion and diverse interests in the realms of science, technology, spirituality, philosophy, art, design, and timeless luxury.

Born in Surat, India; educated in Bangalore, India and Scotland with BSc & MSc degrees in Biotechnology; and residing near Miami, FL, Siddhi's global experiences helped shape her views on the importance of celebrating diversity and oneness. Her roots in science helped her realize the urgent need for humanity to move towards a sustainable lifestyle.

A.D Desai

He is a second generation Indian-American born in Chicago, IL and raised near Miami, FL.
