Soft spoken Sukanya Koosappa is a great lover of nature and Flowers. Her inerest in the nuances of art keeps her leisure time packed with shuttling between drawing and painting classes trying to 'make hay as the sun shines' as they say.

Enjoying the process of creating art itself is second nature to her. Her brush strokes and choice of stunning color combinations seem to breathe life into her paintngs with great ease.

Sukanya has chosen to paint portraits (close-ups) of beautiful flowers for her botanical collection called ' Floral Essence'. Having lived close to nature in her hometowm Mangalore, flowers seem to remind her of the lovely times spent in her home garden as a little girl. Not surprisingly, she has successfully brought the aroma of the flowers into her canvas. 

Here is what she has to say about herself.

Hi!! I am sukanya, born and brought up in Mangalore. I come from a family where everyone poses immense interest in art and music. Hence the artistic instinct has come naturally to me. I have been doing pencil sketch and pastel drawing since my childhood. I have participated in various art competitions during schooling. I have also won 1st prize in an inter school competition. I pursued my Post Graduation (M. Sc) in Information System from Mangalore University and came to Bangalore few years back to take up a career as an IT professional. Along with my job simultaneously I also decided to persist with my passion for art. Since then I have known and practiced various other form of art. I have been doing pencil sketch and charcoal paintings. Two years back I was fortunate to meet Madam Usha Shantaram from whom I learnt Acrylic painting. I generally do landscape and still life paintings.

Next to my family and friends it’s my canvas and colors which make my world complete. As I have been painting for quite long now, my passion for art has flourished to perfection. I find myself more confident in capturing my imagination on canvas and showcase it to world. This is my first art show and I am grateful to Usha madam for giving me this esteemed opportunity.

The Theme of my painting is “Floral Essence”. The cheerfully blooming flowers in my own house garden and in the surroundings have inspired me to take up this theme. I have seen even a withered plant come alive under my mom’s love and care and I have tried my best to capture some of those thriving beautiful flowers on the canvas. It has been totally a wonderful experience for me to explore the beauty of variety of flowers and then capture them on the canvas.

  2. Hi Sukanya,

    Fantastic painting..use of dark background made this painting really appealing. i liked the small flower which was out of focus :). someone rightly said "God lies in the details", doing the petals in detail, made this painting more beautiful.

    keep up the good work...
