Reena’s foundations in art are rooted in her early years in India. Having subsequently travelled widely and lived in UAE, Netherlands and Bahrain, she has assimilated a lot from this cultural diversity.
 
She has had the opportunity to participate in exhibitions in Amsterdam Dubai and Bahrain.
 
Initially attracted to landscape and still life in oils, she now continues to paint in oil while also exploring water colours.
 
She began using water colour through her involvement in the ethnic Indian art form of Tanjore painting. This South Indian art style has its origins in temple art.
 
She expanded her repertoire and started deploying this unique style to create paintings which portray the glory and exquisiteness of oriental jewellery. These are based on the Tanjore style, both in technique as well as basic material, i.e. water colours, semi- precious stones and gold leaf paper. This gives it an impactful 3-D effect allowing them to literally “stand out”. Visually the paintings are enhanced by the different framing styles, adding to the decorative effect.
 
She continues her involvement in oil paintings, now portraying more of the interesting and exceptional travel locations of the recent past.
 
Reena has a master’s degree in drawing & painting and has also taught art over the years.
