Priya Desai grew up in India and enjoyed painting as a child. She is rediscovering her voice through art in her forties. For her art is a way of being. Painting transports her to a place of uninhibited abandon and where she hopes her viewers can join her. Her bold expressive brush strokes and vibrant colors evoke a feeling of joy and delight. She often uses photographs as inspiration but believes in bringing her own expression and interpretation to her art.
She is a physicist by training and has worked on multiple NASA missions before changing her career trajectory and getting into Biomedical Informatics. She resides in Cupertino with her family.
