I am Usha Rai from Bangalore, India.
I am not a formally trained artist.
Painting is a stress buster to me.
I usually paint what I like. It may be flowers,nature or people.
I am not good at abstracts! Anyway I enjoy painting at this last phase of my life!
I tried water colors when I was in school. Then i was experimenting with different types of embroidery. It is true that I almost forgot about painting for about 4 decades because I had different things to do besides my Bank job. My husband and children kept me busy.
I am an established writer in Kannada. I have published 18 books.
I was very much involved in literary as well as social service organizations .
I took voluntary retirement at the age of 55 to pursue my literary works.
But the will of God was different!
We, met with a near fatal road accident and was confined to bed for six months with multiple fractures.
When I could sit up I started painting again with the guidance of my artist friend Nimi Ravindranath because. I wanted some outlet to overcome the trauma of the accident. It really worked and I became an artist. I was 60 at that time. .After 2 years I exhibited my works in a solo exhibition and it surprised everyone.
Now I am 67 and thoroughly enjoying painting. Because of this hobby I could overcome all the pains.
