DEMONSTRATOR

SEPTEMBER 2019

 

Ashwini Bharathula

 

Ashwini Bharathula will be the demonstrator for the September meeting.  Ashwini is a member of PAG and will demonstrate her painting techniques focusing on painting water scenes.

Ashwini was born and raised in South India and is a self-taught realist painter primarily using acrylics and oil on canvas, linen, or wood panel.  From an early age, she began developing her artistry by pencil sketching popular Disney cartoon characters and mystical figures of Indian mythology.  In her autobiography taken from her Web page, Ashwini’s formal education is in science and engineering obtaining her bachelors degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.  She moved to the US in 2005 to pursue higher studies and received her Masters and PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from Ohio State University, Columbus, OH.  After a short stint in the semiconductor technology industry with Intel Corp., and Lam Research Corp., in Portland, Oregon, she returned to art to pursue her passion full time.  She is currently being represented by Fountainhead Gallery in Seattle, WA.

Ashwini writes on her Web site:  

Her aim is to create contemplative art that stimulates the viewer’s senses and kindles nostalgia.  Inspired by eclectic subjects and scenes from her travels, she expresses herself with bold colors and evocative textures.  Her forte is her eye for detail and the ability to use natural light to set the mood of the scene.  She hopes that each of her paintings invites the viewers into the scene and makes them reminisce about experiences from their own lives and travels.”

If you wish to see her artwork and read about her many shows, exhibits, and awards/recognitions, please visit her Website:www.ashwinibharathula.com.
