Ms. Akshita  Lad is an award winning artist.  Her passion for art and design has evolved over the course of her life.

Born in Mumbai and now based in Dubai, Ms. Lad’s love for aesthetics was nurtured in her childhood during family holidays spent visiting museums, where she fell in love with the works of great masters like Da Vinci, Monet, Michelangelo and Rembrandt.

After obtaining a degree in Business and Finance from Boston University's School of Management, Ms.Lad  worked in the real estate industry, gaining valuable experience in residential, commercial, and hospitality developments. She also earned a certificate in Interior Design from the Florence Design Academy in 2004, further honing her skills in design.


In 2018, Ms.Lad  decided to follow her heart and pursue her love of art, joining the prestigious Lotus Educational Institute in Dubai to study painting and drawing. Since then, she has developed a unique style that reflects traditional methods of painting with modern appeal and relevance. Her works showcase a natural affinity for colors and textures, with every piece conveying a sense of inclusion, positivity, joy, and happiness.

Akshita's vast range of works includes portraits, landscapes, and abstract expressionist paintings, with a style that is strongly influenced by the Renaissance and Impressionist Masters. Her paintings display a depth, elegance, and beauty that has garnered widespread acclaim and attention from art lovers and galleries alike.

Ms. Lad  is very inspired by Ruth Bader Ginsburg quote on how she would be liked to be remembered as "Someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability”.  With this in mind,  she paints almost every day and is very dedicated to mastering her craft.   

Lad's passion for creating positive change extends beyond her artistry.  She believes in the collective power of feminine energy to heal, nurture, and create positive changes in the world.  She is dedicated to empowering girls through education and advocating for the protection of nature and animals.

Her paintings reflect these thoughts and feelings, making her an artist whose works are not only beautiful but also meaningful and impactful. ​
