I dream in color!
I have been fascinated with color from an early age and have always surrounded myself with it.
An education and career in the architecture and interior design industry gave me a deeper understanding of color and the positive effects a good color palette can have on the inhabitants of any space.
A few years back I started painting with acrylics and ventured into mixed media art. My paintings are explorations of various media and textures and show my unrestrained obsession with color. I paint whatever catches my fancy, sometimes a color scheme will compel me to start a painting and at other times an image from nature will.
Being born and raised in India, I have the advantage of having soaked in its rich and multi-colored culture and that very often comes through in my creations most of which are vividly colored and rich in texture. I very often start a painting with just a color palette in mind and let my creative energy take charge of the canvas.
I have participated in several group shows, art fairs and bazaars in and around the San Francisco bay area as I really enjoy connecting with people and relating the stories behind my creations to those that are curious and I love listening to theirs in turn.
