I am a self taught artist from India and born in the beautiful city Bangalore. I grew up seeing my talented mother often knitting or busy with some colorful embroidery in her free time, which I picked up from her at a very early age. Spent most of my summers content with my crayons and drawing books, actually anything that had to do with being creative.
I started painting since I was in kindergarten and I still remember winning my first award when I was 6 years old, I had drawn and coloured a mother elephant with her calf and then entering and mostly winning school and college level painting competitions became an important part of my life.
I graduated in textile design and science.
The busy schedule of my professional life was working with the design/merchandise teams of reputed brands/labels from Europe and the US took over all my time but this satiated my need of art .
Then the joy of motherhood took me away from my passion till I was reunited with it a few years back.
The time spend planning each painting, from composing, the photograph, the lighting, to the time my brush engages the paper to the last stroke of paint, I find myself in absolute happiness and fulfillment.
Various subjects are of my interest, still life being my favorite and convenient to my ways of life.
I have a special love for play of light as it passes through glass/crystal and then the birth of colour by refraction, reflections and shadows that result thereof, making it representational of what I see.
I have a great passion for travelling, photography and writing travelogues for which I have won an award too.
To me these mediums are just a way of reliving a journey, experiencing the essence of each beautiful moment that took me to its destination
“Everyday being the first day of my journey to learn and paint as I continue to evolve with every passing day”
