Artists


Mridula Satyamurti

I am a scientist by training and an academician by profession with a lifelong passion for art. I started drawing before I could write and with the encouragement of my parents spent my childhood constantly drawing and painting. Somehow life came in the way of my art and only two years ago I got back to painting. I have been trying my hand at oil and watercolors and occasionally sculpting. I hope to never stop again…

 This is the facebook page that I share with my family and friends:





If I am asked to describe myself in one sentence then it is "Art is my life". As a child I was always curious to learn beadwork , embroidery orknitting from my grandmother. I cultivated a hobby of painting through fabric painting 24 years ago, in India. I have a bachelor's degree in commerce. Along with that I did home science, which also taught me how to integrate art in my daily life. My parents as well as my  art teacher inspired me to paint and with their motivation I always kept my hobby of painting alive. After moving to the States I learnt 'One Stroke' painting and oil painting.  Now, I mostly work with oils and acrylics on landscapes and inspirations from nature. Recently I have also started glass painting, and 3D Art on pots.  I feel that art is everywhere around you, you only need to learn to appreciate it. I hope to continue learning to live through my passion for art.




I am a self-taught artist and a Software Engineer by profession.  Being surrounded by an artistic father and mother has taught me the passion for capturing beautiful things.  Life took hold over the next 15 years which took me away from it.  Re-discovering this passion has been very exhilarating and liberating for me.  I am really enjoying my artistic endeavors which has also made me see the beauty around me with new eyes.  Losing myself in my art gives me the ultimate satisfaction.





I am a business analyst by profession and artist, art teacher by hobby. My journey to art has started with my first oil painting in 1995.This painting not only unleashed my artistic talent but also gave me a path to build my childhood interest into passion.  Since then I kept the passion alive by creating own art work using different media and teaching kids at my own art school. I find greatest joy in teaching and get utmost satisfaction by sharing the essence, happiness of painting, and spark the imagination in kids. I get inspired by an artwork which touches my heart with a great feeling of joy every time I see. My major work is using oil colors on canvas, 2D/3D painting using clay on canvas. Hope this beautiful artistic journey continues forever...

I am a self employed and also a part-time teacher by profession. My passion for art and music began as a child and my parents always encouraged.I began practicing drawing by example and I always did henna tattoos, embroidery, fabric painting and pencil drawings from childhood as a hobby. I continue to do henna tattoos till date. I started to look at henna magazines and basically anything I thought I might be able to. As I grew, developed interest in art of various forms. And now since last five years I am back on the path for my love for art to draw and paint on canvas using oils, acrylics and watercolors. I hope to continue to work on my passion for art.




I am a Software Engineer by profession, but a self-taught Art hobbyist by passion. I’ve enjoyed Art since my childhood. I haven't had any formal training in Art other than that I got inspired by my Dad, whose Art skills I believe, I inherited genetically. As life added work and more responsibilities, Art took a side part in my life. Without any regrets on the past, I have been trying to get back to it lately.

My journey of Art began as a hobby in my childhood, later transformed into a passion. But, it is only recently I have started to experience it solely from my heart. I have done numerous Artworks in various media; pencil, ballpoint pen, ink, sketch pens, watercolor, and oil colors. I do drawings/paintings of portraits, landscapes and objects. I also do Art Illustrations and sculptures on soaps & clay. My approach to Art is realism and I am not satisfied until my work looks beautiful to me. Beauty, richness and skill are the main aspects that I always look for in an Art.

In one word art means, soul to me.




Were it not for the Kalakrutiama , my artistic attributes would lay dormant My background in environment engineering makes me a natural with landscape art and florals that I am exploring in pastels and water colors. My interaction with this group has inspired me to explore and pursue art, so much so that now I can not stop painting.



I have been painting from a very young age. I began as a realistic painter, over the years became more impressionistic and now find myself moving towards semi abstract work. My inspiration comes from life around me, nature, city life, suburbs, people, seasons, colors and moods. I work primarily in acrylics, watercolors and oils.

Today, I offer high quality fine art instruction to adults and children that teaches students how to "see and read" paintings. The curriculum (designed by me) includes the use of several media - pencil, charcoal, soft pastels, oil pastels, watercolors and acrylics. Adult students and children create paintings in several genres including still-life, flowers, the figure, landscape, portraiture, and  cartooning. I teach in group and private lessons. I teach all mediums and all genres of art.


I also conduct Paint Alongs for adults and children throughout the year. I am an active member of several local art societies and organizations and have participated in many group and solo shows. I create and sell artwork through group and solo shows, galleries and my professional blog http://priti-fine-art.blogspot.com/ and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Priti-Lathia-Fine-Art/

I am an artist and designer from India with my forte being Madhubani Painting. An MBA graduate in Finance and a former corporate professional, I couldn’t let my obsession with art lay dormant for long and jumped to embrace it as full time profession at the first given opportunity. Although not being professionally trained in art, I use it to my advantage and create unconventional imperfections along my way which have now become my style and ‘artentity’. My works could be viewed at:

Working with children is my passion. I help children bring out their imagination and creativity through art.
I live in Nashua, NH. For the past 20 years, I have held many different positions, from teaching to school administration.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, Master’s Degree in Fine Arts and a Teaching Certificate for New Hampshire.  Currently I am a teacher for the Nashua School District.
After working with children in the classroom all day, I teach art to children after school. Some might think I'm crazy, but children are imaginative and creative and I love their energy! We have so much fun together as we draw, paint and interact.
I am also a local artist and participate in art events and shows. I work mainly with oils, acrylics and pastels. Over the weekends I keep myself busy doing organized paint nights, children art birthday parties and painting customized art for clients.

While teaching English literature in a college and pursuing my Doctorate in India, I could have never imagined what destiny had in store for me. Growing up, I had learned Mithila/Madhubani art that had been practiced for centuries around my hometown. Years later, when I came to the U.S. and showcased my works at the Peabody Essex Museum, I was overjoyed at the warm reception of this folk art that tells traditional stories through a dense and colorful palette. That was a new turn, and the beginning of a new career for me as an artist. Since then, my work has been exhibited and awarded at several museums, schools and community places around Boston, and I've been teaching and discussing this artistic traditions for children and adult audiences through my exhibitions, demos, talks, artist-in-residency, interactive workshops etc..

I am a psychiatrist by profession. I practice, teach and conduct research into brain disorders at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School. My passionate hobby is sketching  (mostly pen and pencil),. I owe my hobby to my  late grandmother, who tolerated my scribbles on the kitchen walls, and was my first promoter from age 8. My interests include landscapes, portraits and ancient sculptures. 



I am a software engineer by profession with a longstanding passion for art. Art is a foundational part of my life, and I try to spend my free time experimenting with colors - whether it's through painting, dress designing, or interior decorating. The creative process gives me tremendous joy, satisfaction and a sense of great accomplishment. 

I started realizing my dream of studying drawing and painting while I was in school and college. Learning is ongoing process, and I find myself a lifelong learner. I get inspiration from the places I visit, nature, architecture, culture, and the people around me, and I love to capture them using acrylics, watercolors and oils. 




Pablo Picasso once said “Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up”  

I am an artist by heart and also carrying passion for teaching Arts, Crafts and Maths.  Since childhood I have been passionate for arts & mathematics and It’s my father, a professor in Agriculture University, who sowed the seed-of-love for arts & design in me. As I completed my Masters in Mathematics, the passion & understanding of design & sketching also grew. I always believe that Maths & Arts go hand-in-hand. To bring-out the hidden talent within students,  I teach sketching, painting, crafts & dance to adults & kids of all age groups. I run classes in Norwood-Walpole area and also an instructor at Academy of Creative arts in Burlington.

While in Boston, I joined Intense Art classes at Museum of Fine Arts under artist Carmella Yager. To further pursue my interest with digital-media & graphics-design, I attended Massachusetts College of Art and Design for web-design course.

My interest areas of work are semi-abstract, still-life and 3D painting with acrylic, oil, charcoal and oil pastel. I also express my art with web & graphic design. I am an active member in local Art-groups and has been participating and presenting my work at various exhibitions and charity events.

I began drawing and painting when I was 6 years old. My sister taught me how to draw the lotus flower until I perfected it. I then used to practice copying pictures of Hindu deities – often with multiple arms and difficult to draw.

I don’t have a formal training in Art. In high school in Sikkim, India, a new teacher to the school, Mr Sanjay Purohit showed me that I could paint much better if I wasn't in a hurry to complete the painting in a single sitting.

I primarily paint in watercolor and oil. I love watercolor, though I've also tried acrylic, pencil, and other media. I am enthused to be part of Kalakruti, and look forward to painting more often.

I am a self-taught artist. I like to experiment with different media and techniques. I paint in oil, acrylic and mixed-media. I love painting with a palette knife.
