Kalpana Soanes spent her childhood sketching pictures
in the sand on the shores of East Africa but this simple existence was
short-lived. Her flamboyant style had begun to attract crowds.
Naturally, she took commissions. Not for money, just cake, or simply,
She developed her skills every single day, experimented with new
techniques and frequently sketched pictures in public. Spurred on by
the interest it generated, Kalpana started selling her artwork at a very
young age. She liaised with local businesses and soon her work was
scattered all over the world. Next, she enjoyed an exciting career in technology, worked and lived in
different countries in Europe and abroad for several years. However,
something was not right. She missed the good old days. Eventually, her
inner artist broke free of corporate serfdom. Now based in a quaint British village, Kalpana is a full-time artist.
Her work involves acrylics and oils on canvas, often accentuated with
Kalpana Soanes is self-taught.
