Pratima Rao is a national award-winning artist from Holmdel, New Jersey. She has been juried several times into national plein air events such as Paint Annapolis and Wayne Plein Air Festival and most recently, in 2018, into one of the most prestigious plein air events in the country: Plein Air Easton! She is very involved with plein air painting both in the US and abroad. In 2016 she was chosen for a month long residency program in Southern Italy.
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. In her work she seeks to capture the effect of light on the landscape. 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.
Pratima enjoys teaching and offers classes and workshops to the community in Monmouth county, for both studio and plein air landscape oil painting.
She is an exhibiting member and instructor at the Guild of Creative art, a member of the Plein air painters of the Jersey Coast (PAPJC), an associate member of Oil Painters of America (OPA) and the American Impressionist Society (AIS). Pratima is also a resident member at the Salmagundi Arts Club in New York City.
