Artist Statement :
I am Aparna Dharma, an art lover and learner. By profession I am working as Quality Manager in a reputed IT organisation.
While my formal education has been Masters in Computers, I have been blessed to have been trained by many Artists who have guided me in pursuing my passion of painting.
Painting is my passion and most of my weekends I have a brush in my hand.
I love to elaborate the subtle features of nature on canvas.
Flowers, landscapes inspire me to paint.
The uniqueness of each petal, the shades of trees, the reflections of natural surroundings in a river are somethings that make me want to pick up my brush.
When I travel or see places, I imagine them on Canvas.
Of all the mediums, I enjoy using oil paints the most.
I love the energy, color, vitality and effect that oil paints leave on canvas. The 3D effect in knife paintings / impastos attracts me to this medium.
