Poonam Kakkar is a Dubai based Indian artist with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. She fell in love with art at a very young age while understanding the impact of colours and the big difference a little colour can make.
Experimenting with different mediums such as oils, acrylics and fabric paint initially, Poonam’s professional and commercial endeavors began when she was qualifying for a diploma in oil painting. Her involvement in art grew from water based to oil, charcoal to pastels and from paper to canvas and glass leading to fabrics such as silk and eventually Tanjore.
Poonam finds painting enjoyable, exciting and it transports her to a totally different state of mind while providing an excellent medium of self-expression. “Each piece of my art carries a piece of my heart, a part of my soul and a moment of my life!” She says.
Working with children, Poonam finds joy in sharing her skills and passing knowledge to students so they can create their own works of art.
