Dr. Kavita Basavaraju (Dr. Kavita Raju) is a School/Clinical Psychologist who has a part-time Psychology private practice.
She has always had an interest in art and has been painting part-time since 2005. She originally studied how to paint in oils under the guidance of her gifted teacher, Carla Re, who unfortunately passed away a few years ago. Carla taught her techniques on how to paint in the style of the great Masters such as Degas, Gauguin, Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, etc. She has replicated many paintings by these artists which are displayed in her home.
She has been painting at home and at the Artist's Studio in Chelsea Manor in Muttontown, NY, under the guidance of Steve Lampasona since 2017.
An Inside Look
