Mitra Deldar

I worked as an electrical engineer in Indianapolis for 26 years. About 10 years ago, I began to paint as a hobby. Through painting I saw the world differently; I felt such amazing joy and peace. It was as if I had found my passion in life and wherever I painted became my heaven on Earth. My passion for painting allows me to be more connected with nature and my surroundings. My ultimate goal is to share this connection with viewers. It was this special passion of mine that led me to leave my rewarding engineering job. Since then, I now paint full time. I have become a Juried Artist at Hamilton County Artists Association. I continuously improve my skills by attending workshops and taking private lessons from local artists.

My work is diverse and includes a wide variety of subjects. I receive inspiration from the beautiful places I have traveled. In addition, I enjoy painting portraits. I strive to become an impressionistic artist to create paintings, which capture the drama of light, mystery of shadows, and the exquisiteness of nature that surrounds us.
