I am Manjula, a self-taught artist based in Dubai with post graduate degree in Banking and Finance. It was my husband’s sole encouragement that gave me the confidence to try my hand at painting and take up art as a serious pursuit. With an increasing passion for art after my elder son was born, I enjoy every aspect of painting with the blessings and continued support of my family. I mainly work with acrylics and my works include abstract and contemporary art. I draw my inspirations from nature, spirituality, mythology and social and environmental issues. Our travels abroad has inspired me to look at art from different perspectives. As it is said that there is no end to knowledge, my quest for deeper knowledge about art continues.
"Art is like a magnet, pulling the artist towards it, charging them all up and giving immense bliss." - Manjula Kaimal
