Artist Bio

My name is Dewa Raka-Goncalves everyone calls me Dewa. I was born and raised in Bali, Indonesia. Since I was a child, I liked to paint. At the time it was just a hobby, I am a self-taught artist I never took any lessons. I stopped painting for many years because everyone told me I needed to focus on a real career instead. After meeting my wife, she discovered my talent and encouraged me to follow my dreams of being an artist again once I moved to America. I now am a member of many different arts associations, and I am following my dreams while making others happy who buy my artwork.
