Indra is a Trinidad-born visual artist. Her art brings to life many of her childhood memories of growing up in Trinidad in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Her interest is in nature, still life and design. She credits her high school art teacher for helping to awaken her artistic passion, as on her first day in class at age 12, written on her blackboard was: “Art is not only a painting hanging up on a wall, art is in every aspect of your daily life.” These words have stuck in her head ever since.
There is a personal story behind every one of her paintings. She painted every single festival celebrated in Trinidad as well as all the folklore stories heard while growing up. Stop by the library through April 30, 2022, to view Indra’s vibrant paintings in both the hallway and glass case located in the atrium of the library.
