In this episode, I speak with Silicon Valley engineer and artist Uma Kelkar, about what it means to "paint like an engineer". We speak about Uma's education, growing up middle-class in Pune (India), and the role art has played in her life. Uma uses her art as a way to find emotional contentment while pursuing creative goals. Painting like an engineer is a challenge to balance artistic pursuits with a scientific career, in a way that each informs and influences the other.
