Artist Profile: Rachana Saurabh

Rachana Saurabh wrote to me a few months ago, but as you all know I was busy packing, unpacking and then FINALLY setting up house. In these few months, I was very happy to note that various bloggers from the desi design blogland had already featured her. I am going to join the list, as its been aeons since my last 'Artist Profile' and Rachana deserves all the appreciation coming her way :)

An engineer by education, Rachana has no formal training in art- Imagine a right brained person going through 4 years of engineering! She won several art competitions over the years, including one by the prestigious Lalit Kala Academy.

It took a move to the US and a supportive husband (the Saurabh in Rachana's name) for her to start painting full time. I am going to now let her colourful strokes complete the post!
