About Uma Kelkar

Uma Kelkar has won multiple awards for her plein air and in studio watercolor paintings. Having taken part in multiple national and international juried shows, she has also exhibited professional solo shows. She is interested in sketching as a daily practice, digital illustration, and her work is also featured in books on urban sketching and portrait painting. Apart from her own practice, Uma curates shows and teaches locally, nationally, and internationally. Her key strength is bridging the gap between traditional and digital media and employing them both as situation demands. When Uma is not doing art on paper or an iPad, she designs chips for high speed communications in Silicon Valley. She holds a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. The absence of formal art education frees her from norms and allows her to put her emotions on paper and be bold and exploratory in her approach.
