Growing up in Bangalore, India, Suchitra Bhosle was exposed to the world of painting through two artists in her family- her father and grandmother-who helped establish an early appreciation for art. At the age of nine Suchitra proved her aptitude for painting by representing India, and winning a global art competition sponsored by UNESCO. Through school and college Suchitra continued to paint and exhibit her work in Bangalore. Armed with a post- graduate degree in marketing Suchitra entered the corporate world for a few years before she moved to the USA in 2001.
She refocused her energy on her love for painting and made the most of the expansive learning opportunities available in the USA by studying with artists that have inspired her and are an integral part of her artwork. This includes Richard Schmid, Jeremy Lipking, Scott Christensen and Sherrie McGraw. Based in Sacramento, California, Suchitra has been represented by galleries in Sacramento and Palo Alto.
