Life Story


Bhavna Misra has been painting since she was a little girl. She grew up in the hilly region of Himachal in India. Being surrounded by tall pine trees, snowy mountains, lush valleys, clear-water lakes, and diverse wildlife had a lasting impact on her artistic endeavors. Her passion for art was further reinforced by continued encouragement from her parents and teachers.

She graduated with a Masters degree in Science and started working, Misra continued to paint on the side. In her mind science and art were never separate. Science is the art of accuracy, and the technique of art is certainly a science of creativity and she was equally good at both.


Misra believes that not studying art formally gave her a chance to develop her own style, and to live in the spirit of a lifelong student. She practices every day by doing it. She has a special interest in capturing the moment and the energy of the subject. She applies the knowledge of light and its effect to all her pieces. She routinely tries to explore ways to break down the entire process of painting and color mixing just like solving algorithms and theorems.

 

Full-Time Artist


After a slow but determined transition, she started making art full time. She has been displaying her work ever since at various exhibitions and won multiple awards for her work. She works as an art contractor for ACL and owns and operates Bhavna Misra Art Studio near San Francisco.
