|MORE WORK BY THIS ARTIST|
Vatsala, by most standards, is a late bloomer. Growing up and living for most of her adult life in India, her passion for painting bloomed only on her arrival in the U.S. in the mid-1990’s. And even then it was a long journey as a hobby artist to finally enter the world of “serious artist” in 2012. With no formal training, having taken only a couple of workshops with excellent instructors and largely thus self-taught, she ventured into the world of what has now become her enduring passion.

Color and texture are the two cornerstones of Vatsala’s art. A college degree in hand from India, a few jobs that offered no satisfaction in the U.S., she finally gave in to her lifelong desire to paint and has not looked back since.
Art is her life and her oasis. Vatsala is an Abstract artist because abstraction gives her the freedom, the creative space and the spontaneity of composition. The joy and the satisfaction of creating on canvas gives her the energy to pursue her other interests such as travelling, theater, music and reading.
Vatsala says, “My art is about feelings, emotions, impression of the mind. The human mind has always fascinated me. I paint what I feel and sense, not what I see in the material world. Colors, rich and intense, free flowing styles, express my inner thoughts and I translate them on the canvas.
“Art has to have a narrative, excite the viewers, intrigue them to make them want to explore the artist’s mind through the paintings. I am inspired to paint by looking at the works of Mark Rothko and great Indian abstract artists such as Gaitonde and P. Kolte.”
