Smita Sonthalia lives in London and has been practising art for 18 years. Born in India, and growing up in ancient and vibrant culture, she pursued her masters in Fine Arts. She is a contemporary artist, primarily working from her studio in North London. She draws inspiration from nature, spiritualism and women. Most of her paintings are mixed media and acrylic on canvas though she has done several oil-on-canvas as well creating a variety of paintings – figurative, floral, folk and (semi)abstract. She experiments with textures, layers, inks, lines, patterns in her works to create something different. Her paintings have been exhibited at many solo/group exhibitions and art fairs in Singapore, India & UK. Painting is love, work, play, meditation and prayer for Smita.
