About Self in few lines:
After Diploma from Khopoli Chitrakala Mahavdyalaya ,Mumbai University in Art and working as a freelance Fine artist , I evolved as a fine art, oil and Acrylic color painter. Commonly portraying figurative imagery, I painterly realistic paintings have received some awards as they have been exhibited in regional and state juried, invitational, group.
My subject matter, color and style are a very personal, intuitive part of who I am since I discovered art . I enjoy working with Landscape & figurative more and more I am examining landscape and often combine the two. I love watching people, especially children as I wish to see the world of wonder a new through their eyes. I am most interested in small everyday moments often missed or seemingly unimportant compared to the social and headline grabbing events of the world.
I derive my inspiration from nature. As I watch a certain scene, the experience of its beauty takes me to nothingness. Then I try to express my experience through my painting. This experience inspires me. The great thinker, the artist and the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore says,
“By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower”.
It only means, the experience of beauty is whole and not in parts.
