Priya Hazari is a watercolor artist, online art teacher, and the creative owner of Petals by Priya Watercolor Designs. She specializes in painting soft, loose watercolor florals and botanicals and has recently started exploring gouache landscape paintings.
What started as an evening hobby in 2018 has now become Priya’s full-time career as she teaches in-depth classes on Skillshare to more than 1,000+ students, creates painting tutorials on Youtube, and also produces her artwork into art prints, greeting cards, and stickers that are sold through a variety of retailers around the United States. Priya received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Marketing from the University of Washington which she now puts to use to help run her business and grow a following of more than 20,000 across her social media channels. Priya’s most treasured part of her art journey over the years has been connecting with other passionate artists around the world and creating meaningful friendships in the art community. Priya loves experimenting with new mediums, styles, and painting tools; however, her go-to brushes for creating her signature loose florals are the Neptune size 8 round brush and Velvetouch round brushes sizes 2 through 6. Priya lives in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii with her husband and two cats, and enjoys spending time outdoors, hiking, paddleboarding, and soaking up the sunshine.
