An example of fine art by Shanthi Kumar

I developed a passion for drawing and painting at a young age, inspired by the architects, designers and artists in my family. Born and raised in India, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Stella Maris College (University of Madras). 
I moved to the U.S in 2002 and live in Denver CO with my husband and  two dogs! 
I paint, and exhibit my works in state and national juried shows, and am a board member  of Colorado Watercolor Society and The National Watercolor Society, and a Signature member of the Colorado Watercolor Society.


The inspiration for a painting usually starts with a particular color or texture that catches my eye. I create my composition with particular emphasis on the light that surrounds it, so I can capture the nuanced beauty of all the shadows and reflected colors that tie the different elements of the painting together. Most of all, I love ‘painting in' details that I see in an object or subject and sharing my perspective with the viewer.
