Gel Jamlang

Bethesda, MD, USA
I am an artist living in Bethesda. I combine realism and whimsical imagery using watercolor and other mediums. I would describe my work as emotional. I am inspired by the human form. I also paint unconventional human portraits with watercolor, using their personal sentiment to create a picturesque outlook.
I am a RAW artist ( and recently won Visual Artist of the Year 2012, competing with artists across the nation.

Because of my interior design and construction background, I gravitate towards beauty and colors. My ideas in creating revolves around finding a beautiful picture in the most unexpected places of the imagination.
