Reena Datta

Ten years ago, I decided I should start doing the things I always wanted to do but never did.  So I learnt swimming and squash. I started traveling to the places I always wanted to see. I tried the guitar. And I wanted to paint!


While browsing in a bookshop, I came across a book. It was a book on watercolor paintings by the amazing artists Mr. Milind Mullick. I don’t have the words to describe the feeling I got seeing his work. I bought the book and carried it with me wherever I went. It was around then that I went to Orissa on a holiday and I carried it along with me. Every night I would go through the book with wonder and marvel. I returned from the trip with the wish to paint in watercolors. I am not an art student. I studied statistics. I was nervous. And then I emailed Milind Sir. And that’s how the journey began.
