  • Biography
     "Art has put me on to the path of joy and self discovery. The process of transferring my thoughts on to a canvas through colors and shapes is gratifying."

    Padmaja is from Bangalore, India and lives in Oman. Art has been a part of her life for years now.  The roots of her artistic journey lie in depicting scenes from Hindu mythology in her own original way guided by  the wall sculptures in century old temples of South India. Along the road of her creative journey she has chosen to express herself through contemporary impressionistic, expressionist as well as abstract approaches to painting.

    "The practice of daily painting has given a new dimension to my life. Each new canvas is exciting and is approached with the same enthusiasm and curiosity that I held for my first one long back.I try to bring on to my canvas what I perceive from nature and people, the most inspiring aspects to my creation. The spiritual connection I make with nature and its creator is being transferred on to my landscapes and seascapes, trying to bring in its essence and seeking an emotional response from the viewer. I also often try to incorporate stories behind people whom I come across in to my landscapes. Bright and bold colors applied with the palette knife is often an important element of what I create. I am enjoying my journey of constant learning and creating!"
