About Anu Puri
I live in Ludhiana,Punjab. My journey began with a keen interest in artworks by the great masters like Titian, Raphael and many more. As a Fine Arts student,numerous visits to my college library developed my fondness for the history of art. I became aware of the transcendental power of art while examining the outstanding works of masters & soon started making represented works.
Years after leaving college and living as a house wife, I surrendered to my creeative side and restarted as a painter. I quickly discovered that I was happiest and most fulfilled when I was painting.
A born nature-lover, I chose to settle with a theme of floral paintings. My love for gardening enhanced my passion for this theme. It seemed like a natural process. I feel emotionally overwhelmed, excited, totally inspired and glad to paint florals. Loving what you do really does make your life grand!
Sometimes, I also paints serene woman and mostly combine these woman with flowers to create a joyful view.
My technique is making many layers of color in controlled movements that help to create unconventional style of a blend of realistic & impressionistic art. Over the years and with a lot of practice, my strokes have become quite detailed .
My goal as a painter is to bring the overwhelming beauty of the nature from the outside, into our living space. I try to makes a humble effort to immortalize the ephemeral beauty of nature on my canvas. I want my paintings to create an aura of positive, soothing vibes around the surrounding space so that they become powerful enough to heal and nurture anyone emotionally, spiritually and psychologically, in the most natural way.
I have participated in many exhibitions in Ludhiana, Delhi, Mumbai & Dubai.
Born with a natural instinct for learning,I am now learning about figurative art as I plan to include that in my cart. In my endeavors to do the best I did an online course on Gesture Drawing with US based renowned artist Brent Eviston.
Currently I am learning online the classical techniques from UK based Natalie Richy of Old Masters Academy . Learning from international professionals keeps me motivated to become a better artist.
I am hoping to bring more & more beautiful art that many can relate to.
