About Pooja Pittie

A self-taught artist, who lives in Chicago, I am constantly inspired by my travels and daily surroundings in my creative experiments. I enjoy painting large colorful abstract works as well as pattern-like, small detailed pieces. I have recently made a career change to focus on my childhood passion for art and cannot wait to see where this creative journey leads me!
