I am essentially a painter.
I love playing with colors and with textures.
I experiment a lot. I love to try out new mediums and techniques.
As stated earlier, I am a self taught artist. So luckily I did not learn any rules. I am happy for that as I do not feel constrained in any manner. I explore my subject matter and the medium I would like to display it in.
I am an early riser and before I get out of bed I spend a lot of time thinking about what I will be working on that day.
If I dont paint I feel my day has been wasted.
I am a self taught artist and have been sketching since I can remember. I started painting also at the age of seven. . I did my Masters in Psychology as I was not allowed to go to an art school. Art was not a career for girls in India when I was growing up. I moved to South Africa in 1994. Though struggling for my survival in an alien country and trying to organize my commodity trading buisness there I found time to paint virtually on a daily basis. I found the bright colors of Frica inspiring along with movement and the feeling of space. I painted for mysekf with no thought of putting my art out for public viewing. In 2004 I was encouraged by the Consul General of the Indian Consulate in Johannesburg to have my first exhibition. This was sponsored by the Indian Embassy in South Africa. I have subsequently had many exhibitions. in India as well as Internationally. These have been mainly solos and a few group shows. I had the opportunity to participate at UNESCO Paris along with 11 other eminent International artists in Oct 2015. I recently had two solos at San Fransisco and Chicago respectively.. I am currently in Delhi, India
