Biography My love for painting started as a preschooler when I was gifted my first box of wax crayons, it turned into my passion...gradually I fell in love with watercolors and since then, I have moved freely between mediums - watercolors, acrylics and oils...depending on my inspiration for a particular piece of work I do. Inspirations have been from exploring nature and folk arts. I have been painting for a long time, and have held exhibitions in India as well. I have been into textile designing, promoting Traditional Indian Folk art and Hand embroideries on textiles and other mediums. After I moved to Canada, I have joined numerous workshops conducted by well known artists in the country. I let the colors dictate the creativity on paper or canvas. My journey as an artist continues exploring my own ideas and bringing them into life with chosen mediums. I am a self taught artist and my work is more intuitive based. I love impressionism in an abstract form. All in all, I enjoy the process of painting, the mixing of colors, the gradients, the texture of good grained paper or the tooth of a good canvas. And I do believe that there should be no rules at all. One should be able to play with colors and experiment with different mediums and materials, and enjoy the journey of creativity.

I hope my paintings bring you as much joy as they have to me. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at all!
