I am an Indian born, Melbourne based artist. Art was a passion of mine in my teens and twenties and I wanted to pursue it as a career, but back in those days the chances of making it as an artist and earning a living through it were bleak and my parents encouraged me to get a proper degree that would get me a decent job. So, after a career, marriage, kids, migrating to a new country and then later a job redundancy, 35 or so years later, I now find myself free to pursue my passion and creativity again!

In my youth, I worked in watercolours, oils and pencils, but now I mostly use acrylic and watercolours. Being a self-taught artist with no formal training, my natural style leans towards realism and I create each piece with great care, paying careful attention to every detail. I also love to dabble in mixed media, fabric collage and pottery.
