Prerna Gupta is a botanical artist from India who is not afraid to get down in the dirt to find nature’s littlest treasures. Through her work, Prerna strives to inhabit that space where art and science meet, where aesthetic beauty and knowledge combine. Art as a calling came to her much later in life and now she cannot imagine not living a creative life.
Prerna lives and works on a peaceful and quiet university campus in the North of India, giving her many opportunities to explore and experience the biodiversity of this tropical country. Outside of her day job working with students in higher technical education, and the time spent in creating art, she loves to take long walks and read books. Her latest interest is gardening, despite the fact that her plants seem to be dying off faster than she can blink!
