About Artist

I am a self-styled artist, with no formal training from any school of arts; had started painting at the age of nine. A scientist in natural science, with a Masters in Botany and PhD in Marine Biology, from Kerala University, India, I am basically a lover of arts, a good musician capable of handling both carnatic and light tunes. I had taken to painting seriously since 1992, my style being a harmonious blend of modern and the classic. Being a naturalist favorite themes of my painting are landscapes, oceanscapes and flowers; I like to experiment with water colors, oil, acrylic and mixed medium. I try to capture the essence of nature in photographs and then translate these into paintings
