HI! I’m Poonam.
A Passionate Artist Painting Her World from Upstate NY.
Few people can say that they’re lucky enough to live their passion every single day. As a full-time contemporary abstract artist, I am one of those people – expressing my character through color and creativity from my art studio in Upstate New York. I’ve even had the honor of working for household names like Samsung – perhaps you’ve even seen my art light up your living room while your TV is in Art Mode! It was a privilege to make the Frame TV something people want to watch even when they’re not watching TV.
My work showcases my mind’s inner workings through a fusion of acrylic paint, oil pastels, extreme texture contrasts, ceramic, concrete, epoxy resin, glass stones...I could go on. I’ve never been one to bind myself to one tool or material. When it comes to conveying my thoughts, emotions, feelings, and mood through art, I explore as many mediums as possible – and it all depends on where I draw inspiration from for the particular piece I’m working on. Today, my private art collections have been featured on an international stage, and my art has been sold to almost every corner of the world.
I’ve always been fascinated by art, in particular, the concepts of feminism, abstract geometry, and modern takes on nature’s landscapes. Art is a universal language everyone can understand, even if they don’t share the same native tongue. Dig deep, and you can see at a glance whether a painting expresses love, anger, conflict, sorrow, joy...it’s all there between the lines and layers of color and texture.
Abstract art is a way to me to showcase my soul on the outside, translating my intangible feelings and emotions into real, physical pieces of art that you can touch and experience with the senses. Wherever possible, I try to use all-natural materials sourced from nature which are just as strong as they are delicate – showcasing the contrasting vigor and vulnerability of mother nature. Creating abstract figurative art is no easy feat, but the outcome makes everything worth it – an authentic portrayal of the intangible emotions of my spirit.
And as an artist, I take my responsibility to share messages of inspiration very, very seriously. My hope is that, through art, I can awaken emotions in the people who view my work – be it ecstasy, elegance, retrospect, or pensiveness. Art changes lives, and sometimes, can even save lives, by inspiring people to slow down, breathe, and truly absorb the raw beauty of life.
I have International private collections in the USA, UK, Canada, Great Britain, Russia, Germany, Italy, Norway, France, Switzerland, China, India, Qatar, Australia, New Zealand.
