The drawing is created using free flowing, freehand lines with archival artist ink. Flowers and textures have been created using acrylic on bottle caps. Filling has been done with artist quality pencil colours. the artwork has been fixed and sealed with clear sealer. The artwork depicts gaiety through beautiful colours, lines and floral patterns.
I draw and paint intuitively and spontaneously, moving from chaos and void to order, balance and rhythm. I go with the flow, drawing and painting only something that I connect to, or something that comes from deep within. For me, art is like meditation and music. It blocks out all negativities and pressures, putting me in a state of “flow” (as Mihaly stated).
I love to create using lines and bright, bold colours, often combining them as mixed media. Working as a Designer for many years, I frequently worked with lines and dots. I enjoy drawing freehand, where every freehand action, every mark created, leads to the next one, and next, creating a poetry with lines, a story in rhythm. The bright, vibrant colours and free-flowing lines of Mithila/Madhubani art of my native place also inspire me.

I am professionally a Designer, an Artist at heart and Writer for the soul. Originally an Artist-Designer from India, I currently reside in Greater Atlanta Area, Georgia, USA. Graduate in Drawing and Painting (Honours) and postgraduate in design (Master of Design- M.Des.), a state level award winning art student, visual art remains my first and foremost passion. After completing M.Des. in the year 2000, I started working as a designer in fashion and apparel industry in India. After eight years in the industry, joined fashion/apparel design institutes and taught drawing, illustration, art and design related subjects at graduate and postgraduate level for about another eight years, while pursuing my passion for art. With over sixteen years of work experience in the field of fashion, design, art and academics, I am a full time artist now and accept commissions for art and design.
