Pratima, contemporary British artist, based in Hertfordshire, has spent her formative years growing up in a Hindu brahmin family, in Gujarat, India.
Educated in a school based on Mahatma Gandhi’s principle has played a major roll in her ability to appreciate literature, poetry, classical music and dance, arts and all crafts and respect for all life forms.
Through her sculptures she tries to show humility despite the abject poverty, optimism, kindness and inner beauty in people she encounters and her early career as a Microbiologist, requiring intense observation for minute details, a transferable skill, that informs her practice.
