Born and raised in Mumbai, India, Priya Saraf now resides in Frederick, Maryland.
Although Priya loved drawing and painting since childhood, she never formally trained in art. Instead, she got her bachelors in Pharmacy from University of Mumbai and then went on to work in IT and insurance companies. Her passion for art was rekindled only after moving to the US in 2012 and she has been painting actively ever since.
Priya paints with oil and acrylic paints and is inspired by impressionism, which is quite evident from her art. She mostly tries to capture the essence of natural beauty through her paintings of landscapes, seascapes and flowers. She hopes to convey the level of joy she experienced from the scenes of nature whilst instilling a touch of fantasy with her characteristic use of bright colors, bold brushstrokes and texture inspired by the colors found in everyday life in India.
Reception to meet the artist: May 12, 5-8pm .
