Born as Judy Koslofsky in 1947 in New York, Jadurani Dasi studied music and art at high school and majored in art and history from the New York City College. Later, she also took a course at the Institute of Art in Colorado and learnt elements and principles of design. She was the first Art Director of ISKCON and has painted over 200 works for ISKCON’s temples and publications, amongst others. Jadurani’s painting style combines influences from both India and the West. While the authenticity of costumes, ornaments, architecture, scenery, and beauty of the faces and other bodily features in her imagery are inspired by her studies of Indian painting, the realism, dramatic lighting, and the perspective in her art have clearly been impacted by her western training. When she is not travelling, she resides in Vrindavan, India.
