Evolving her own style

Sarojini Sinha is a painter with a difference. Born on September 14,1950, she developed an interest in painting early in her childhood. During her teens she was into fabric painting. But it was only after marriage that her dream of becoming a painter came true, being a bureaucrat's wife (wife of the Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, P.K. Sinha). Though she did not have any formal training she evolved a style of her own and from 1978 onwards there was no looking back.

Her oil paintings of Himalayan village, landscaping, mountains covered with snow, Ganesa-Hanuman, etc., portray her attempt to define happiness. Her multi dimensional works range from the abstract to the realistic. Sinha who initially exhibited her paintings at clubs in Ranchi and Jamshedpur also exhibited at the Lalit Kala Akademi (thrice) and Hyyat Regency in New Delhi. Her paintings on Adivasi women of Bihar with the title "Intezar", 'Phoolon Ki Vadi' and 'Himalay Ke Anek Roop' sold like hot cakes at the Lalit Kala Akademi in New Delhi. She concentrates mostly on nature as there is no end to the depth of nature.

Much to be appreciated apart from the paintings is that in spite of being a top-notch bureaucrat's wife with hectic schedules and looking after her children, she finds time to pursue her hobby unlike some others who though they are talented tend to give up midway.

Her advice to the budding artists is not to lose interest but practice without whiling away time.

P.B.
