Nirmala Jetty, Birmingham Member Since June 2011 Artist Statement I am a working mom with two children, living in Birmingham, AL with my family. I love my work, besides my family and my art helps me connect to my soul which for me is a great way of relaxation. I believe art is a fascinating way to connect and inspire others as well.I was not trained professionally in art and my works come from daily inspirations and sometimes creative energy flows into me and I can't stop until I project it on to the canvas. I love colors and I enjoy going wild with colors. Since my country of origin is India, some of my art pieces have a touch of our rich tradition and culture. I work with different media at different times.
