Born and bought up in Nainital, I believe that Nature inspires me to paint. After completing my high school, I moved to Delhi to complete my graduation, eventually getting up married and settling down in the city. I have closely observed the quaintness of the mountain life and the bustle of the metropolitan. Art is my way of finding lost peace and patience in a busy city life wherein I can transform my emotions into vivid colours on a canvas. My paintings range from the traditional art style of Madhubani and Kalamkari to evocative modern landscapes. They are detailed in the intricacies of life and nature. When I am not working on my canvas, I teach at a Public School in Delhi and my wish is to turn my passion for art into a full-fledged career.
