By Hand From The Heart: One Show, Many Stories!

By Hand From The Heart is a curated makers market event in Chennai, South India. UPCOMING EVENT: CHENNAI: AUGUST 3RD – 4TH,

Meet The Artist: Reshmi Gopinath, Varnaalaya

I am Reshmi Gopinath, an artist based in Chennai. I mostly work with acrylics and oils. I ventured into painting through the guidance of Mrs.Takako Shinoda, a professional artist from Bellevue  WA USA in 2006. Since then I’ve been painting regularly and have been a part of juried and non-juried shows in Maryland  USA ,Chennai and Bangalore. Now  ART is an inevitable part of me.


Tell us about your works and your proposed showcase at By Hand From The Heart.

My works are all about Nature. I find great happiness in painting  flora and fauna. I will be showcasing for the show  some of my landscapes that generate the feeling of nostalgia.


Can you  describe your work space.

A well lit corner of my room  is the most most comfortable studio space I have.


What /who inspires  you?

Definitely  nature… I find inspiration from every thing around me.


How do you get around creative blocks?

Yes I do get these blocks… to overcome this; I join a group of artist friends and do some live sketching  and positive support from family and friends goes a long way.


Best thing about being an artist.

I believe that being an artist  is a real privilege. Having an artist eye helps you find vibrance in everything around you.

What would you say to someone thinking about selling their works.

Please go ahead, its a great motivation and that means someone really appreciates the creativity in you.
