Hema Rana, Pottstown, PA Member Since April 2009 Artist Statement I am a self-taught artist. I create art spontaneously. I just put the colors on the canvas and start painting with my knife. My strokes are random and yet controlled. I stop when I feel the artwork pleases my eyes. I am inspired by the colors in nature and try and use the same to bring harmony to my paintings. I only paint when I have a strong urge and am filled with plenty of energy.
