The Story

“I was never as good with words as with figures and form – this always came naturally to me.”

Richa’s journey started 10 years ago in a small town near the Western Ghats in India. Creating art drew her away from commercial arts training. She ventured alone learning as she progressed. Teachers and mentors eg Mr Thorat, Shelar Sir came for a time but the journey was solitary... “Sometimes when it rains and the mists come, an ache rises in my heart and soul for Home. Some of the works on display are part of my introspection about myself, some reflections on my life and home - the trees, jungles, lakes, mountains wrapped together in the incredible life of the sunlight there...

I think I was not good with words, these paintings tell my story.”

The Only Window Opens Inward (leading painting title piece)

From the window I see something so pure, so real, it evokes in me a connection, a connection to my hometown in India. I look at this and my mind calms…

The people, the places I see once more… I see the rise of light and a source of energy that fulfils me, balancing the busy city life of London and reminding me of our spiritual connection.
