My Life is My Achievement....

Rukshana Hooda had been just a home maker for 25 years. When her health started to fail her She went back to doing what she used to enjoy as a young girl, Painting. She was a Semi Abstract Artist with a Foundation degree from Sir J.J. School of Art and was armed with a Diploma in Textile Design from Sophia College, Mumbai. Rukshana revisited her core and realised that she had not lost her ability to create in Semi Abstract Paintings which are pertaining to designating a style of painting or sculpture in which the subject remains recognizable although the forms are highly stylized in a manner derived from abstract art.
According to her The biggest challenge, which She finally overcame, was to find her own space and get back to creativity whilst being a full time homemaker.
Also health was on a decline but was able to overcome all of it and get back to art and art shows, to see every day as a challenge, to heal, to be able to do more and better art, to win awards, to be motivational which she feels  is a tremendous BLESSING.
She says ~ My Awards are a sign of being appreciated as an Artist, people do recognize me as a Professional Painter and is blessed to have this opportunity to express herself through her Paintings. According to her a total cloud nine feeling is to be recognized and to be alive through her art. She says visiting homes of Families, Friends, Collectors and seeing her works displayed there and being appreciated inspires  her to create more and paint better… !
Winning The Jubilee Arts for Western India was The Biggest Honor and One of her Best Achievement so far...TOUCH WOOD...!!!
According to Rukshana her family has been her greatest strength.
Rukshana feels  seeing her Awards and Certificates She feels more impassioned to Paint better…!!!

Her favorite quote that also applies to her life ~Your dreams are your paints, the world is your canvas, Believing,  is the brush that converts your dreams into a masterpiece of reality & that Masterpiece is your Life....!!!!


Your dreams are your paints, the world is your canvas.. Believing, is the brush that converts your dreams into a masterpiece of reality and that Masterpiece is your Life....!!!!

Winning in The Jubilee Arts for Western India was The Biggest Honor and my Best Achievement so far...TOUCH WOOD...!!!

Jubilee Arts 4th Feb 2018.

Artist : Rukshana Hooda
                                 Location : Mumbai, India.
                                 Semi Abstract Artist.

Jubilee Arts is a new international programme established during the Diamond Jubilee year to celebrate the global Ismaili Jamat's vast artistic skills and cultural traditions. Whatever your creative passion — painting, architecture, filmmaking, dance, or musical performance — Jubilee Arts will unleash and celebrate these talents in countries all over the world.     

This was held on 4th feb. 2018 at The Fine Arts Society Fine Arts Cultural Centre, Chembur East, Mumbai, India

Hello Family and Friends, I am a Semi-Abstract Visual Artist, For those who wish to know about Semi-Abstract ~ A Semi Abstract Painting is pertaining to or designating a style of painting or sculpture in which the subject remains recognizable although the forms are highly stylized in a manner derived from abstract art. 

My Artworks, For The Jubilee Arts 2018 are My Aspiration depict Devotion, A Legacy, Celebration, Happiness, Joy, as i feel so blessed to be able to express through my Paintings.
Title : "Celebration" which is a Harvest of the farmers who are singing, dancing and celebrating their yearly harvest after a long toil and here i was so lucky to witness and be part of their celebration, it was Simply divine…!  
Their Devotion enthralled me, i was in awe with their candor. Lovely to be with such wonderful, simple, clear hearted magnanimous people
. I was so inspired that as soon as i returned from my trip  just decided to paint their celebration which is so colorful with a lot of warmth. Their harvest means so much to them  and we have a lot to learn from these simple villagers. In these Paintings I have shown their merriment, they enjoy with simple musical instruments.

Their Simplicity, Innocence, large-heartedness, warmth, Love, is so unique, so wonderful, a Charm by itself in being naive.  These painting are so close to my heart as they depicts just Love, Warmth, Togetherness all of that missing in today's time and era. These abstract terms so difficult to express and that is what i tried to capture on my canvas. Their Celebrations begins at twilight and goes on till the wee hours of dawn, the sun and moon lit their path, hence the warm colors.
The Panels of Semi Abstract works depict being lost in Music, the tranquility is expressed in warm and cool colors. Music is food to the soul and it changes the mood, making one more happier, rejuvenated, Enthralled.
The colors are vibrant, warm and yet serene.

 Thank you for going through my Artworks for your time and Patience...!!!

And Finally The Surprise Element ~The Award by Jubilee Arts 4th Feb 2018, A Prestigious Moment with Butterflies in my stomach...
As everything in Life is Momentary, Only Hard work pays, 

And The Show must go on.... 

 My Artworks and Me ..

These series are about spiritualism in a warm & cool color scheme.My thought process was hymns, bhajans, ginans, quasida's, Sant Mat whereby those are sung melodiously but the actual musical instruments are missing likewise a comparision between melody, spiritualism, going in a trance, serenity, peace....
Likewise the similarity between a semi abstract painting where the subject gets hidden in the stylized art forms.

About The Artist : Rukshana derives inspiration for her work from nature and the world around her, nature in its own self has always absorbed her expression in its beauty, its serenity and its solitude that transcends feelings beyond mortal boundaries. For Rukshana beauty holds no form, she endeavors to capture and create its essence on her easel.
Words by Rukshana...I am a perpetual student of learning, still a child, learning, un-learning and re-Learning, that quest for knowledge will forever remain. Most of my artworks speak volumes on eulogy about Creation. I also Love Music, and am totally lost in there which also inspires me to paint.My Art Works are Semi Abstract, are eco-friendly and they speak volumes about nature and environment. My Medium is Mainly Charcoals, with Texture and Acrylics. I feel my Paintings depict new Beginnings, a chance to re-live in the beauty and bask in the glory of nature...!!! I am totally blessed to have this opportunity to express myself through paintings. I love it when people say my artwork enhances their lives.”
Lines from an Art Critic : "Her subject is never a story but a lyrical and takes you in a world of fantasy which is sublime in nature."
Whilst Viewing her Art-works turn on all your senses and let life make its impact on you.
