Thank you for your interest!
Meera's art is inspired by nature, memories of her native India and travels. Largely self-taught, Meera has been painting for three decades and also teaches painting. She primarily works with oil, acrylic & mixed media. A three month youth expedition to China with Raleigh International was a turning point in her life, encouraging her to quit her accounting job in Dubai and enter the field of corporate communications in the U.S. Even as she switched gears/countries, her art was a constant source of inspiration. Later, as a stay-at-home-mom, she breathed new life into her art as a second innings of her career. "Mine is definitely a tale of two states (of mind) - my life as an American and my Indian roots. I gravitate toward my subjects due to a connect to the verve and vibrancy of India. Sometimes, issues I feel strongly about take shape on canvas - in an abstract or contemplative form." Through her art, Meera offers her worldview and a narrative of her Indian heritage and culture. Her paintings are routinely juried into prominent exhibits in New Jersey, Westchester (NY), and Fairfield (CT) counties. Whether it’s starting a new painting or teaching, Meera's approach is like an amateur - to work with the same verve, openness, wonder & curiosity of a beginner.
