Shanthi Manickam painting called Yellow Roses

Shanthi Manickam

Fine Artist

Being outdoors, feeling the wind, smelling the flowers, passing by the woods, watching the movement of sunlight as it hits all of these sights and capturing it on the canvas is precious to me. My subjects are usually natural landscapes, trees, flowers, and people. My style is representational. Using acrylics and oils as my medium, I strive to bring depth into my paintings. They make people see the wholeness of the subject and appreciate its beauty.

I am an artist from Pennsylvania. Born and raised in India, I have a master’s degree in computer science. Initially I taught myself to paint landscapes and flowers in acrylic medium. Later I became a member and learned Plein Air painting at the Chester County Art Association.

I have taken part in Plein Air Art competitions held as Plein Air Brandywine Valley art competitions in Wilmington, Delaware from 2011 through 2016.

I took a break and concentrated on learning classical painting techniques from an expert Chester County artist. Equipped with new skills, now I create beautiful oil and acrylic paintings with subjects ranging from landscapes and florals to portraits and figures.

I exhibit in art shows in various cities of Pennsylvania and online.
