ABOUT MEERA LEE PATEL
Meera Lee Patel is a self-taught artist living in Brooklyn, NY. Her work is inspired by her native India, her childhood experiences on the Jersey Shore, and the quiet stories that lace through everyday life. Bright colors, the mysteries of nature, and self-care are just some of the themes that you'll find running through her artwork.
Meera studied at Rutgers University and graduated with degrees in English and Journalism & Media Studies. She worked as an editor at a publishing company shortly after college. Feeling lost in a desk job that held little meaning for her personally, she began to search for creative fulfillment. She wanted to feel excited, creative, and passionate again, so she taught herself to draw and paint. After taking her work to social media, Etsy, and craft fairs she began to realize she could make a career out of something she truly enjoyed and she left the corporate world to pursue her creative dreams.
Meera has built a loyal following and in addition to her personally-inspired projects, she has worked with clients as diverse as American Express, NASA, and Jamie Magazine.
