This weekend, swing by Malvern Arts on your daily walk for a visual treat:
“Being outdoors, feeling the wind, smelling the flowers, passing by the woods, watching the movement of sunlight as it hits all of these sights and capturing it on the canvas is precious to me. My subjects are usually natural landscapes, trees, flowers and people. I have been painting pleinair in an impressionistic style and am now shifting to realism. Using acrylics and oils as my medium, I strive to bring depth into my paintings. They make people see the wholeness of the subject and appreciate its beauty.”
About the Artist:
Shanthi is primarily a self-taught artist from Pennsylvania. She learned Plein Air painting at the Chester County Art Association, started participating in Plein Air Art competitions in 2011, and has participated in Plein Air Brandywine Valley art competitions in Wilmington, Delaware from 2013 through 2016.
Shanthi went on to study classical painting techniques with Randall Graham in Malvern. Equipped with new skills, she now creates beautiful oil and acrylic paintings with subjects ranging from landscapes and florals to portraits and figures. She has exhibited in Chester County Art Association member shows, juried shows, and the CCAA Exton Square Gallery in Exton, PA.
You can view Shanthi’s paintings this weekend: Saturday, 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm and Sunday, 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm
