My Art is a sum of me and my experiences...

The architecture, colors, textiles, and celebrations of life from India, are my muses, they inspire peace, joy and spirituality in my paintings. I challenge myself to create impressionist art with a palate of earthy, rural, and royal hues like the colors of terra cotta, sandalwood, fresh leaves, indigo, saffron and Indian silks. 
My predominant medium is oils and Ink drawings.

Currently, I am working on Daily Oils and Daily Zentangles, where I create small paintings everyday. Daily Oils are exclusive Oil paintings on 6X6 inch panels with subjects ranging from Portraits, still life, landscapes and figures...Daily Zentangles are  ink drawings of structured patterns on 3.5X3.5 inch paper tiles.
