About Our Cover Artist Bhavna Misra

Fremont-based fine artist and certified art educator Bhavna Misra paints primarily in oil and occasionally uses acrylic, watercolors, and pastels. The oil painting on our cover is titled “Staying Away from Sugar.” Done on an 8-inch square canvas, it's part of Food as Art, the artist’s ongoing still-life series in which she highlights fruits and vegetables. Through her food-themed art, Bhavna hopes to create meaningful work and raise awareness about healthy food choices.

Portraits and the natural world are Bhavna’s other favorite subjects to paint. She finds that surrounding herself with nature, beauty, and positivity helps her create harmonious, colorful compositions. Through her paintings, she attempts to present color in its pure brilliance, maintaining a careful balance of accuracy and expressionism.

You can find Bhavna Misra online at and contact her at bhavna.misra(at) or 510.862.4169. She is professionally affiliated with the Fremont Art Association.
