Feelings and Imaginations

Anita Kalani Haputantri, a dentist by profession is on the other hand a talented artist who spouts out her artistic talents through what she feels and imagines. Caricatures are her main form of art. She uses her hands on a canvas with oils, water colours, pastels or charcoal; or else on a ball of clay to pour out her imaginations.

"I have been painting since I was a kid. My mother, Consy Goonetilleke was the art teacher of St.Paul's Milagiriya Girls School, and she was my teacher as well", says Anitha.

"It's relaxing and great. I never let the paint brush fall apart from my hand even I studied in the science stream. I won first place in many art competitions as a child," reminisces Anitha.

Anitha studied at Holy Family Convent, Bambalapitiya. She has been in the dental profession for the past six years. Married and a mother of two, Anitha says finding time for her art work is not possible. "I believe that if there is a will there is a way, and try to do both with best of my abilities," she thinks.

Anitha's art work mainly on caricatures, but she also does portraits as well. Anitha hopes to hold her own art exhibition at Alliance, Colombo from April 3 until the end of the month.
