Ruchi Rai is an Abstract Artist based in Sydney, Australia. Her journey with colour and design started in India, where she completed a 3 year Diploma in Textile Design.
While living in India, after finishing her Art and Design qualifications, she gained some experience of ‘free hand’ painting on silk and chiffon sarees, it was apparently just like ‘creating an art on a large canvas’.
Unfortunately, due to family commitments, she was unable to pursue her dream of becoming an Artist and had to return to work in a Bank, and was there for almost 20 years. However, with the support of her wonderful husband, she entered the world of Art and Design once again only about 3 years ago…how fabulous!
The time had come for Ruchi to get her creative juices flowing again, all she could think about at work was colour, art, paint….so she quit her job and became full-time artist. How exciting, scary and brave would that have been all at the same time!
In 2011- 2012 she completed a ‘Cert IV in Colour & Design’ and 2012-2013 further studied ‘Surface Design’ from ISCD ( International School of Colour & Design) in North Sydney….a course I am currently, slowing making my way through as well.
She mainly work with acrylics, washes and sometimes ink. She believes Art is a way to express feelings and emotions that we feel towards people, nature and this beautiful earth that we live in.
She believes in ‘spontaneity’ and ‘free flow’ of strokes and her affiliation with Indian textiles is reflective in her art which feature bold colours, textures and pattern.
Ruchi now works from a small studio at home which is her haven!
