Her paintings are a breathtaking symphony of color, vibrating with energy. Priya’s process of painting is like a joyous dance, each lyrical movement breathes life into the birds that are often the subject of her art.
Inspired by the breathtaking landscapes of the Australian wilderness, from tropical rainforests to diverse wildlife, Priya’s heart carries the love for her homeland.

Believing that global unity, empathy, and peace are vital lessons, Priya sees her travels and varied residencies as integral to her daughter’s education. Recent months spent on the islands of Bali and Java have left an indelible mark on her mind and soul, influencing the art that is unfolding from her easel.
