Though painting was my hobby since childhood, I never tried painting in a better way until I saw Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" painting in Paris. Since I am Software Engineer by profession in India, I had a chance to visit Europe for my assignments. Being in Europe, I got inspired by a lot of museums displaying artworks. And because of my love for nature, I started painting landscapes first, and then tried my hand on some abstract paintings too. Although I'm a self-taught artist, I would not like to miss mentioning Google and YouTube. I've displayed my artworks in some group exhibitions in India, and got good reviews for my artworks.
