Renuka Sondhi Gulati, eminent artist and feminist painter, has been displaying  her  paintings and sculptures at various cities and niche herself a place in eternity of artists. Her art work explores the triumphant spirit of a woman. Renuka also seeks to portray the relationship between nature and the manmade and juxtaposes them in a harmonious milieu.

For her, the empowered female is the embodiment of 'Shakti', ready to take life on her own terms. She strives to free the female psyche from victimisation and take her to self-realisation. Her strokes and choice of colours arouse feelings and latent emotions and this shows that she has grown and matured as an artist.
