Mitra N Devon is a Fine Art Painter residing in Littleton, Colorado. Her medium of choice is oils on canvas. Mitra’s representational paintings of nature and the natural landscape are all inspirations derived from her own love of nature and landscape photography. She has been painting with oils since the age of 10.
Art has always been a passion for Mitra. She graduated with a degree in the Design of Environment and Art History from the University of Pennsylvania and with a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from The University of Massachusetts in Amherst. In the past six years, she has been participating in painting studios at the Art Student League of Denver where she is currently studying with Internationally known artists, Rob Gratiot and Doug Dawson.
Her paintings are in many private collections throughout the Country. She also exhibits her work in shows throughout Denver, Colorado and through National and International Online gallery exhibits and competitions.
Painting with Oils has been my favorite medium since the age of ten. My training and educational background in the History of Art, Design of the Environment and Landscape Architecture have provided a rich foundation of design principles which continue to drive the visual design and composition of my nature and landscape paintings. The painting process keeps me focused on the here and now.
The nuances of nature and the natural landscape and their inherent beauty are what inspire me to paint with oils on canvas. With my oils and brush in hand, I delight in the edges, textures, shapes and colors that hold me captive in a moment's time, in a specific place, mood and scene within my surrounding locale and its natural elements. Through painting, I seek to capture that one scene and moment that compels us to pause and take it all in.
It is my hope that the finished painted canvas can focus the viewer's attention and move them the same way I was moved in an instance in time by a specific moment in nature and its surrounding scenery. With each painting, I seek to reveal the fleeting light, movement, patterns and beauty that make the ordinary extraordinary.
