Pratima Rao

Pratima Rao is a national award-winning artist from Holmdel, New Jersey. She has been juried several times into prestigious national plein air events such as ‘Paint Annapolis’ and “Wayne Plein air festival”. She has been involved with plein air painting in the US and abroad during trips to Hawaii, Puerto Rico, India, and Europe.

Pratima’s oil paintings are representational land and seascapes, light-filled and color harmonious, capturing the atmosphere and feel of the place with her unmistakable style. The final paintings are exciting and colorful conveying her unique point of view. While she is primarily a Plein Air artist creating most of her work outdoors on location she frequently uses her plein air work to create larger studio works. Her works have been included in a number of shows and are collected by patrons across the country. Pratima is an exhibiting member at the Guild of Creative art in Shrewsbury, NJ a member of the Plein air painters of the Jersey Coast (PAPJC) and Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association (MPAPA), an associate member of Oil Painters of America (OPA) and the American Impressionist Society (AIS).Rao_Pratima
