Artist’s Reception with Kamala

Saturday, May 4, 2019

Kamala is the proverbial late bloomer when it comes to painting. From barely being able to draw an apple, today she has progressed remarkably in her 70s. Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, Kamala has had a variety of experiences, having lived in Singapore, different places in India, England, mainland Europe, then New Jersey and now Florida. She was married at the age of 17 to Ramachandran and has two daughters. After the passing of her husband, she learned a famous South Indian painting style known as Thanjavur painting, which is mostly of Hindu deities, enhanced with semi-precious stones and gold foil laid over raised relief. With encouragement from family and friends, she has nurtured and developed her painting skills and has developed her new-found talent with the guidance of YouTube tutorials. This month she will be presenting her paintings, which are based on these tutorials. Her work will be on display at the Parkland Library May 1st through 31st.
