Rajani Patil is a Redmond-based artist and small business owner. She develops her abstract fluid art processes while creating resin art, acrylic pours, and alcohol ink arts; layering and guiding the colors to flow on the canvas to bring out unique patterns.
Rajani grew up in beautiful western India surrounded by diverse traditional and contemporary art. These early influences have sparked many of her inspirations to stem from nature, creating forms that flow to create her organic and abstract art.
Rajani has a Master's degree in Architecture from India. As an architect early on and now a user experience designer, Rajani has worked in the design field in diverse roles from designing built environments to digital experiences. She volunteered as an art docent at her daughter’s elementary school, and her passion for always learning, exploring, and fine-tuning new art techniques led to her start an art studio where she introduces young students (ages 5-11 years) to master artists and their art processes, giving each student a strong foundation in various art media.

Art works of my student artists
I love to introduce young students (age 5-11 yr) to master artists and their art processes, giving each student a strong foundation in various art media. In my free time, I'm either brainstorming with student artists on how to perfect their artistic processes or working on perfecting my own.
And I love to SEW!
My grandmother taught my mom patternmaking and sewing beautiful outfits and accessories. My mom loved to design unique dresses for me taking time out of her busy schedule and letting me help her with sewing while I was still in middle school. I still remember how I needed to stand on a foot so that I'd be able to reach the paddle of her super sturdy Singer sewing machine with another foot! Now I enjoy making dresses and costumes for my daughter who appreciates anything that has a nice twirl.
(Keeping up with the tradition, my daughter loves to explore various art media. Also, she asked for a sewing project of her own as soon as she turned ten and now she sews for her dolls. Check out her artworks and sewing projects here on her webpage or on her YouTube channel and on her FB page Tanvi's Studio.)
