Biography


Sandhyaa Shetty currently works from her studio in Austin,Tx . She started drawing at a very early age under the guidance of her father who's career was in advertising . She believes that he is her guiding force and she thanks him for everything she is today.  After receiving her B.F.A  in commercial art from the College of Fine Art, Bangalore, India, she worked as a visualizer for few years. She also taught commercial art at the Institute of fine arts . Alongside she also painted and exhibited her works. Throughout she knew that her calling was to be a painter and she decided to return to her passion full time. When her marriage brought her to the US, the beautiful landscapes and people here continued to inspire her to paint. 
 
Her earlier works reflected the beauty of rural India. Though she was brought up in an urban setting, she also feels blessed to have experienced the country life thanks to her grandparents. She still misses her times spent at their farm every summer. Her representational landscape paintings are inspired by the raw natural beauty surrounding her.  It is the mutual interaction with the divine nature and the emotional connection she feels with every scene she paints. Her immense regard for the rapidly disappearing natural landscape, strengthens her intent to freeze it all on her canvas and hopes that this pristine beauty is preserved forever.
