I am Piya Samant, a self-taught visual artist and art curator. Born and raised in India, I now reside and work out of my home studio in Massachusetts. I have a few degrees in technology and management but none in art. After working in the tech world for well over a decade, I decided to pursue my career as a full-time artist and curator in 2014.
Oil is my first love; I enjoy working in graphite, charcoal and acrylic as well. I've painted commissioned portraits of people and pets, explored flora and fauna painting themes and am currently focusing on landscapes painted in oil using palette knives. My artwork is in local museums, galleries and cafes. I feel fortunate to have the support of art patrons. I'm actively looking for gallery representation.
