Ekta Gupta

Colored pencils, graphite, acrylics, photography
On display in our retail gallery

A pharmacist by education, Ekta Gupta first picked up a colored pencil in 2010. Colored pencils are her preferred medium, but she also likes to work with graphite, and enjoys experimenting with pen and ink, pastels, charcoal, acrylics and chalk. She was introduced to photography as the need arose for reference pictures for her artwork. It has turned into a full blown passion and she rarely steps out without her camera around her neck.

img055-cBorn in India, she has been living in the U.S. for more than three decades. Mostly a self-taught artist, she has been fortunate enough to have received instruction from artists such as Margaret Davidson and Kathleen Mckeehen at the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, and Dayne Dudley in Tulsa, OK. Her work has been featured in Colored Pencil magazine, Courageous Creativity, and Ann Kullberg’s Colored Pencil Magazine. She has also shown her work at local galleries and various art walks and art festivals. Currently she serves on the board at artEAST gallery, and shares her love for creating through classes at the gallery as well at the Issaquah Senior Center.
