Meera's art is inspired by nature, memories of her native, vibrant 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, she continued painting. Later, as a stay-at-home-mom, she began pursuing art as a working creative. 

"Mine is definitely a tale of two states (of mind) - my life as an American and my Indian roots. I’m influenced by all that I experience, unafraid, I pretty much paint as a response to a spontaneous reaction, an emotion or sheer beauty of a subject, and that's reflected in my choice of diverse subjects, style, technique and composition. Invariably some paintings tend to have a connect to the verve and vibrancy of India. My hope is that my paintings evoke an emotion, a memory, strikes any chord or just intrigues the viewer, and my India-inspired art offers a narrative of my Indian heritage and culture."

 

Meera's paintings are routinely juried into prominent exhibits in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. Her paintings are in home collections globally spanning the US, Canada, India, the U.K. and Australia. Whether it’s starting a new painting or teaching, Meera believes in approaching it with the same openness, excitement & curiosity of a beginner.
