Meet Jyotsna Umesh, this week’s top American Watercolor Weekly Ambassador!
I am Jyotsna Umesh, born in India and now live in northern Virginia US. I was always interested in doodling since I was child but I started recently three years ago when I saw mesmerizing watercolor painting of Milind Mullick. Something changed in me and I was dedicated to learn this medium.
Since then there is not a single day when I have not watched a tutorial or painted or read watercolor book. Painting in this medium is like meditation to me. It answers all my questions and I am at peace when I am surrounded by colors.
I am engineer by profession and painter by hobby. The day is close when I would paint full time and leave my IT job.
My work has been exhibited in Gum Spring library as solo show. My upcoming solo exhibitions are scheduled for Fall 2019 at Loudoun Visit Leesburg and Middleburg public Library.
Happy to share that my paintings have found home in India and USA. I teach private lessons and group lessons. My sessions have been hosted at Dulles South Recreation services and several Loudoun libraries.
I am member of international Watercolor Society (AWS) and Virginia Watercolor Society .
My suggestion to new water-colorists is to share their work without any hesitation or fear. I can say by my experience that my support structure that includes my family and friends were rock solid. I owe my learning to them.
