Usha Rai (b. 1945, Udupi, Karnataka)
Life is a long journey with lots of cross roads!
Success is possible only if you choose the correct road, which is very difficult and most of the time decided by the fate! Sometimes life takes a u turn and ditches us in dark. No one knows what is in store for us next moment.But we have to move forward instead of blaming our fate. This is the stage where we need lot of confidence! I started painting in such a moment when I was dumped into darkness because of a near fatal road accident. At that time painting became my stress buster. Now I started living again with all the odds. Thanks to Painting and to Nimi my artist friend of Nakshathra Art Foundation who introduced me to painting at the age of 60!
I love my brushes and colours! I paint for joy and it is a stress buster to me! I am not a trained artist but people ask me whether I can take classes! This always amuses me. Basically I am a writer in Kannada and I have 20 books to my credit.I write Novels, short stories, poems and essays on different subjects. Recent one is my autobiography which got good reviews.
Usha Rai is offering a wide variety of originals and fine art prints for sale in the ArtSlant Salesroom (here)
