Ma Deva Padma (born Susan Morgan in the United States in 1947) has lived in Australia for over 20 years. Padma’s art is a unique blend of Far Eastern motifs and the diverse nature surrounding her home in the bushland of North Central Victoria. After years of travelling and exhibiting she (and her stone sculptor husband Ashika) created Embrace Art Studio. Her paintings express the beauty she finds in the “inner” world of meditation and the “outer” natural world. Her art is held in private and public collections nationally and internationally.
