‘Speaking Of The Arts:’ Lata Fields

Lata Fields enjoys painting with acrylics, pastels and other mediums.

Lata Fields is a portrait artist in Atlanta, born and raised in India. “Faces interest me,” says Fields. Her portraiture takes many forms, her tools varying from pen and ink, graphite and pastels to watercolor and chalk.

The gateway to a life in visual art opened for Fields when she enrolled her daughter in art classes, deciding to join in and participate herself. After a few months of taking classes, Fields fully committed.

She takes inspiration from her Indian upbringing in bringing bold color to the forefront of her artwork, as well as a joy in nature. She is a member of the Georgia Chalk Artist’s Guild and the Visual Artists Alliance of LaGrange. Her current project is a portrait of the actor Jack Nicholson.
