I am Samruddha Purekar from India.
I have completed my Masters in Visual Arts, Portraiture. Art for me is a way and means of living. I believe that art exists within and around us, it doesn’t have to be superficial.
I feel its best explained through painting than through words and it takes a while to develop a technique unique to its own style but the learning process is never ending as knowledge itself is a vast ocean.
Art is Life
I am a late starter, found my passion for art in my 20’s. Decades later I find myself almost full circle, back to painting and drawing after years of moving image/time based work.
Art has always been a constant companion and force in my life, shaped me into who I am. The challenges I face at present after having had a formal art education, is to allow those critical thinking skills to take a backseat and engage again at a fundamental level with the very basic skills and craft of art making.
From My Mind to the Canvas
I am a self-taught artist and am currently pursuing a painting course from an online art academy. The academy is covering every aspect related to paints and techniques of painting, except drawing. Presently am dependent on reference images for drawing and I wish to change it.
An American Illustrator, Kenneth Leon Roberts
As an American illustrator, I work and live in Provo, Utah U.S.A. I currently am an author / illustrator who writes children’s books and creates illustrations, which teaches values. I believe that the world needs valuable art that brings out the best in people.
I have spent the last six years trying to develop my art. I am self-taught, and I struggle with the basics of art. I am now a full time devoted illustrator who has settled down after a life time career traveling as an international travel agent. I have hopes and dreams of someday making my mark on the art world.
Aaron’s wonderful waterfall
I have been drawing and painting since I was ten though now; I’m 41. I paint landscapes, seascapes, mountains, lakes, and portraits in oil and watercolor.
Art has a certain place as a daily activity for me to paint draw or learn.
I am my art
When I wake up in the morning, my imagination is already ahead of me. Drawing out of bed to create. It’s an escape to a world of where I have the control to draw life onto one blank paper.
I am a commercial artist. I have learned Applied arts and have a bachelors degree for the same. For me art is like meditation. I practice drawing daily but don’t know that I am going in the right direction. So I always feel like having a good mentor to teach me would be best.
I want to draw everything I see because I like to express whatever I feel by putting it down paper or any other surface.

Hi everyone! I’m Jess, a self-taught artist and I’m entering this competition for a chance to further my passion!
This piece is a digital piece, done in Paint Tool SAI, since I’ve been working with digital art for a while and really like the capabilities it offers. It also saves quite a bit of energy for when I can’t work up the courage to create completely finished artworks!
Blessed to be a Blessing
Dabbing finger paints eagerly and molding a world of play-doh would mark the beginnings of my ever growing love for all that is creative in this world. From childhood to adolescents every sketch and impression of pencil, chalk or paint on canvas would proclaim my greatest fears and passions to all who beheld them. The strokes first exclaimed deep sadness but soon wandered joyfully into the expanse of, an immensely valuable, life where Jesus loved and knew me as his friend…
Art and crafts became my passion as hobbies in the last eight years after leaving my profession in civil engineering to become a mum and take care of two awesome kids. I am now 39 years old and I look forward to an exciting year in the arts alongside a British artist, who himself is a member of the Drawing Academy.
Art is essential in my life for many reasons – one of them is to encourage and help my kids to develop their talents in art…
