About Mohana Pradhan

Why do I paint? This incredible gift of love for art is unexplainable in few words. It simply feels good! Everything that I paint is in some way a reflection of me. My paintings and creativity fills me with an unexpected happiness, like feeling the warmth of the sun when it’s bitter cold or feeling the touch of raindrops on the skin in sweltering heat.
I am a San Jose Artist, returned to my artistic roots after a career in Graphics and Web Design. Originally graduated in Fine Arts from L.S. Raheja School of Arts and Architecture, Mumbai, India with a major in painting.
I draw inspiration from nature’s canvas, people, and moments of everyday life. I paint what I observe and feel, play with colors, go loose or mostly find beauty in the fine details. Watercolor is my favorite medium; I love the transparency and how the colors appear luminous. As an observer of nature, it’s endless variety and riddles, its infinite colors have always awed me. I am constantly striving to perfect those colors in my paintings.
Every painting tells a story: a title is a mere suggestion... opening a door and showing a way to approach the subject. Through my work, I hope to influence your life with aspects of nature that we see everyday but seldom notice.
After six successful Silicon Valley Open Studios in Belmont, Los Altos, San
Mateo and San Jose this will be my seventh year to showcase my new works for 2019. I continue to be creatively motivated and fan this flame the Universe has ignited for me.
