Poonam Kakkar fell in love with painting at a young age. It taught her to look at objects from a different perspective and she began to understand colors and how much difference a bit of color can make. Soon, she began experimenting with other mediums such as oil and fabrics. Her involvement in art grew from water-based to oil paintings and from charcoals to pastels and from paper to glass to fabric to silk.
Her professional endeavors began when she qualified for a formal diploma in oil painting, enabling her to get involved with the commercial aspects of her hobby. She currently operates from her studio in Dubai.
