Born and raised in India, Smita has experienced ancient roots and a vibrant culture, sparking interest in art very early on. Her love for painting and colors since childhood only got deeper by internalizing the various  art forms in the country as she traveled around, read & learnt about them. She pursued a Masters in Fine Arts to help learn the intricacies. She primarily draws inspiration from nature, spiritualism and women. These subjects have immense depth and are close to her heart. Most of her paintings are mixed media as she experiments with textures, layers, inks, lines, patterns to create a unique piece each time. She has been painting for 18 years. 

Smita says - Art is a very powerful tool. It tells stories without speaking a word. It can evoke a tsunami of emotions in your heart or can calm and relax your mind. Her paintings are her best friends, philosophers and guides and she enjoys every moment when she has a brush in hand. Paintings motivate me constantly to live my dream – creating art and spreading my wings on canvas. 

 

Painting is love, work, play, meditation and prayer for her.
