Hello! 😃 I’m Dr.MEHTA!
I am the creator of STUDIO*XEPHON. I have a degree in Astronomy from the University of Texas in Austin and a Medicine degree from the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. I have been practicing Internal Medicine for over fourteen years in Texas as a primary care doctor.
I cherish being a physician, taking care of people and helping my patients be “happy & healthy” as I often say. It is an honor and privilege to be a physician in society, working hard to raise up my patients to improve their health in mind, body and spirit. A happy person is a healthy person! This is philosophically and spiritually important to me.
Helping people means that they are able to follow their self-interests as a healthy person. This may include raising their family, going to work, spending time with the grandchildren, going to work, creating art, music or just enjoying retirement. I enjoy taking the time to speak to my patients and getting to know each of them. People are really interesting!
I strive to gently encourage my patients to be the best person that they can be, if not today then tomorrow. Hope is always with us. Sometimes we need to hear it or speak it aloud, particularly when the conversation turns to cancer.
Originally this blog website was meant to be a small corner of the internet where I would write about travel, photography, digital painting, culture, music and my synesthesia. In 2017, I witnessed a person’s bravery, fortitude and gratitude that made a meaningful emotional impact on me. Afterwards I realized that my photographs and paintings should be used as a way to help people who are facing cancer everywhere. There are billions of mobile devices in the world now. If everyone spent $1 for a pretty photo to use as wallpaper for every device they own, then all I had to do is donate all the proceeds to cancer charities. Cancer affects us all. I want to inspire people to action with my photography and paintings. Everyone around the world can easily participate to make a real difference to people diagnosed with cancer, turning patients to survivors.
Sharing our humanity reveals to people that giving to one another is the fountainhead of Hope.
is the fountainhead of Hope.

The Journey Ahead
As a self-taught digital artist, I have completed over 200 paintings in the last ten years. My process of creating a painting from travel photography is so interesting! From beginning to end it requires learning new skills including how to be a better traveler, digital photography (including cameras and lenses), computer hardware and imaging software including Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter, Macphun Luminar and many others.
So that’s what the STUDIO*XEPHON blog website is going to be all about. Exploring the often unexpected delightful intellectual revelations that illustrate the connections between travel, history, photography, computers, movies, music, software, synesthesia, classical art, digital paintings, science and technlogy.
All of this in the service of raising money for charities dedicated to cancer education, prevention, research and treatment.
I’m Dr.MEHTA. I’ll see you next time! 🤠
