About Saroja La Colorista
As long as Saroja can remember she has been interested in art, drawing and coloring.
She has traveled extensively and is inspired by different landscapes and cultures. She lived many years in India, where she started painting full-time with oils and a palette knife on canvas.
She has also lived and worked many years in Majorca, where she is called 'La Colorista', due to her inspired color work.
Already very young she won prices in painting and drawing. Saroja studied informal art in Holland (portrait at the academy of fine arts in Maastricht) and in India (at the school of art and creativity in Poona), but is predominantly self-taught.
She has developed her very own style, color play and technique in abstract landscapes, seascapes, clouds and cosmic vibrations, creating certain feelings and atmospheres. Some are very vibrant, emotional, with strong colors, others are just very quiet monochromes with shades of one tone, Her paintings vary from very small to very big.
Saroja is also a musician and describes her art as akin to music, expressing inner emotion without representing the real world.
Abstraction going into Impressionism or Impressionism going into Expressionism.
Saroja has been a part of many exhibitions worldwide and her paintings are in many private collections in India, France, Holland, South Korea, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Australia, US, UK, Norway, Sweden, Slovenia, Spain and Portugal.
Recently, Saroja created a small farm and painting studio with her husband, a skilled carpenter who makes all her frames. Together they are creating a paradise with their four dogs, three sheep and 30 chickens.
