A self-taught artist, Sudakshina was born in Kolkata ( India ), the city famous for its rich cultural heritage. From a very early stage in life, Sudakshina was groomed by her mother to become an artist. She derives her inspiration for her creation from her own interpretation of beauty and enjoys exploring different techniques and media to express her realisation.
She has worked with charcoal, watercolour and acrylic extensively and has sold her works at international exhibitions. For quite sometime, she has been painting with coffee. This purely organic medium is easily available all over the world and allows her to pursue her artistic activity anywhere and everywhere. A sheet of watercolour paper, some water and paintbrush is all that she needs to create her artwork. She finds this versatile and unique medium with its heavenly aroma and pigment capable of creating fascinating shades of sepia and dramatic textures on watercolour paper.
Through her work, she would like to deliver the rich culture of her motherland and the endless beauty of nature to the people around the world.
