Artist Bio

Self Portrait

Hi, am from Chennai, India. Am a self taught artist mostly into acrylic and oil pastels. Still life and landscape are my subjects of interest. Exploring portrait subjects, pencil and watercolour techniques recently.

It dawned on me when my 6 year old son was answering a question "What's your mother ?" from his book. I was pleasantly surprised he answered "Artist".

I love to draw and paint from when i was 6, as far as i could remember. Eventually that's the only thing i did after i took a break from work, to be with my kid. He is very observant and I guess he saw me enjoying it very much when i did.

People say am very sensitive, i feel it is the primary quality for anyone to gain expertise, am happy to be sensitive and empathetic. Most of my works are things i overanalysed and found the rock bottom either with or without answer, so am proud to present them !!

Am lucky to be associated with a couple of pros who often make me work really very hard to gain their appreciation !! Thanks to them I discovered i could do reasonably well !! Thanks to my friends who made me upload my work here, which otherwise were left unattended.

Please visit and post your valuable comments, its very encouraging.

Thanks in advance Padmavathy Ragavendran
