About Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa

I did my Ph.D. in Microbiology. I am an artist too. I am passionate about painting. I am a self taught artist. I have been painting since my childhood but became an active artist since 2006. .As I am from the field of science, the themes of most of my paintings are based on science. I specialize in Art from Science. However, I bring together science, religion, art ,philosophy etc. to create harmony between these varied fields.
I am also a writer, a poet, a designer, a social activist & a network creator. I explore the relationship between art & science on my network.
