Paramjot Kaur exhibiting artwork at the Under the Rainbow exhibition in Bluewater

Hello! I’m Paramjot Kaur. I use pencils, charcoal and sometimes other traditional media to create hyperrealistic art.

I enjoy drawing portraits and scenes that have an ethereal, dream-like quality to them. I like to combine realism with surreal or imagined elements, merging life-like appearances with social or emotional themes and so embedding meaning into work.

Art as a profession

I've always loved to create, but I didn't like the constraints of art at school. I chose not to pursue an artistic degree, only jumping back into a regular practice in my 20s when art became an important emotional outlet for me.

 

In a bid to connect with others through what would have been my private sketches and illustrations, I started to share my work online. It snowballed from there. Before I knew it, I was had opened an Esty shop and was taking custom portrait orders from customers near and far.
