After a 17-year career as a software engineer Raj was able to follow his passion and transition to a full-time career in painting in 2009. He describes himself as one of the "New Orientalists," a traveling painter in the modern world. Storytelling is his focus and his subjects include India (where he grew up), family travel scenes, and portraits. Raj is on the faculty of the Art Students League of Denver where he teachers 3-day workshops on "The Traveling Painter" and "Composition." He is represented locally by Saks Gallery in Cherry Creek.
