Biography


Rajitha has been interested in art since she was 10 years old and was drawn to color and sketches done by local artists. She loved to sketch as a child and she automatically gravitated towards drawing portraits from magazines. Recognizing her talent her parents encouraged her to paint. She did not start formal training until several years later but she spent years painting from her ideas.
 
She moved to the United States in 1992 and began working full time as an engineer once she finished her studies. Years later she started her formal training in mediums such as watercolor, charcoal, color pencil, ink, pastels, and acrylics from a local artist in Virginia.
She then learnt to paint in oil and took several workshops in still life painting. Initially, her work was mostly portraits and still life but she eventually began doing landscapes, florals and animal paintings. She likes to paint in acrylic and oil. On her friend’s request, she did her first custom dog portrait a few years ago which lead to several others. She loves to paint with palette knives and has done some pieces including a custom seascape.
 
She has traveled to several countries including England, France, Italy, Mexico, and Canada. She likes to paint from pictures she took on her several trips around the United States and is constantly learning and experimenting with new techniques in art.
 
She won an Outstanding acrylic award in the March 2019 Bold Brush competition and she’s a member of Oil Painters of America.
