Rutuja Manik Patil

I'm a native of Kolhapur, Maharashtra. My interest in art began in early childhood, and by the age of eight, I began painting.
I am fascinated by the color, light patterns, and variety found in nature–particularly with respect to water lilies. One can spend a life time and never come close to capturing the beauty and tranquility found in the natural world. I feel blessed to have the time to look so deeply into the life around me and hope to share that feeling with you through my paintings.
I started with watercolor but felt rapidly that oil painting would match way of being.Basically, I'm a self-taught painter . Nevertheless I took some drawing lessons from my Guru (Manisha Aunty) in Kolhapur.

I prefer my painting to be a development of ideas rather than static images and often use different styles to achieve this. The life that goes on around me, the places I’ve been, or the times I’ve lived through are reflected in my paintings, and my work has always helped me refine self awareness, and provided an outlet for expression

Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
