P. Khara, Artist

Born in India in the early sixties he spent his youth in an all boys British boarding school.  During his pre-collegiate years, he felt a strong urge to be a full-time artist but was heavily discouraged by those around him. As a compromise, he enrolled in a hospitality industry business program and spent numerous years in the hotel industry in various European countries.  In 1986, he arrived in the United States and to date has spent thirty years as a successful REALTOR and CEO of While he has sold thousands of houses in mid Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia, his passion to be a working artist has never diminished.  Enamored by the visuals of a square art format, he began painting square pieces in various sizes.  Soon, collectors were buying his pieces.  Here is a close up on one of his recently works.
