ABOUT NITA PATELNita Patel’s life of art began upon hearing the fable of the Balinese dragon, the Naga who claims to protect its people during the day and descends the ocean at night to see his true love, the Pearl. John Hardy’s Naga collection sparked her desire for creative expression and she began creating Asian inspired art, later evolving to incorporate her spirituality and ideation of love depicting both direct and indirect interpretations. Her abstract work embodies the unknowns we struggle to untangle where enlightenment is the only way out. Sharing her creative interpretations with others is her way of passing the message forward. Nita is best known for her multi-media work in which she exploits an array of mediums – from the more typical oil and acrylics upon canvas, wood, rice paper and glass, to her uniquely clever and masterful utilization of precious materials such as diamonds, gold, and other exotic constituents. Her use of precious materials signifies the ounce of hope that gives us strength to carry us through the dark moments. Further, in her expression of care towards those she engages, Nita leverages her corporate experience and her formal psychology education offering guidance to those who embark on their journey towards fulfillment. Born in Croydon, UK, Nita traveled frequently between London and Dallas during her childhood, attending elementary school in both countries. Her formative years were influenced not only by the American and English cultures, but also by her parents’ South Asian Indian and African origins. Being an amalgam of values and mores helped to formulate her strong and resilient character as an artist. Nita shows her work in the UK and US. She is currently based in Dallas.
