Thank you for visiting & for your interest!
Meera's art is inspired by nature, memories of her native, vibrant India and world travels. Self-taught, Meera has been painting for three decades. 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 practice was a source of inspiration and later began pursuing it full-time as a working creative. Meera also volunteers to teach art in a local enrichment program for underserved teens, conducts workshops and teaches painting in local after-school programs.
"My story is definitely a tale of two states (of mind) - my life as an American and my Indian roots. Influenced by all life experiences, I 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, styles, techniques and composition. Invariably some paintings tend to have a connection to the verve and vibrancy of India. With my art, I aim to evoke an emotion, a memory, strike any chord or just intrigue the viewer."
Meera's paintings are routinely juried into prominent exhibits in the tri-state area. 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.
