Leena Parekh, an ardent lover of colours, sees life in all shades, tints, tones
Born in 1969, she pursued commercial arts from J. J. School of Arts and later
took up a textile designing course at Rachna Sansad.
After marriage, she always looked for ways to stay connected with her art, be

She forgets about all things worldly as she holds her paint-brush and like any
true artist, sees the reflection of her thoughts, mind, and soul in her works. Painting is her love, and her meditation.
Her muses are Buddha and Ganesha and she also enjoys painting landscapes.
As her daughters have grown-up now, and responsibilities are lighter, she
wishes to completely jump into her paints with a splash, sell her works, and
reach a wider audience.
