About the Instructor

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 honed her art skills under the tutelage of Duane Dudley, one of the illustrators of the Scooby Doo movies.

Ekta 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.
