Veenita Dar is a watercolour artist and an avid gardener. She quit full-time professional work as a microbiologist to pursue painting.
Through her paintings, Dar translates the nostalgic charm of nature in a whimsical style that is hard to find elsewhere today.
Her love for gardens manifests itself in her paintings which consist primarily of flowers that she has grown in her own garden, or those that she has come across during her travels.
Dar’s painting style comprises very delicately painted botanical art with loose florals. Her interest in nature has always been present, but she feels that she has found a peace and calm in painting that she couldn’t have found elsewhere. Dar’s art has changed over the years, as she has experimented across mediums with different styles. One thing, however, has remained constant throughout, all her work has a certain quiet luminescence reminiscent of the serenity we all seek around us.
