Reetu Chopra is an artist in every sense of the word artist. After a long and very successful career in the International corporate world. At age 50, Reetu has switched over to pursue being a full time artist. She is very passionate about Portrait drawing, because every face tells a different story. Every human story has elements of peaks (joy, happiness, acceptance, love, union…) and valleys (sadness, separation, anxiety, rejection, fear..). In that sense our stories, experiences are the same. This is the reason why Reetu loves portraiture and finds it deeply spiritual. For her, it is an experience of capturing her own self and her own feeling in a person with a different face. Her Medium of choice for portraits is mostly charcoal and soft pastels. Reetu also paints landscapes, seascapes as well as still life (Semi realism as well as abstract). The experience of painting for her is deeply spiritual- it is a state of being in union with not just all beings but also all of cosmos. Reetu has expertise in charcoal and dry pastel portraits. She also has expertise in Acrylic and Ink palette Knife Painting. She has a unique mix-media style of using actual tea to stain dry pastel and charcoal paintings, which gives a unique aged ie. vintage look to the artwork.
