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....!!!!
