My paintings are a reflection of emotions arising out of various situations. I am inspired by
nature . The paintings also reflect the peace of mind that a person intends to find when he is amidst nature. The source of many an enthrawling depiction often lies in memories. I use transparent layers of colour that flow easily into each other and let all hues and textures peer through and make subtle transitions into each other thus bringing about a relaxed blend of shades that are vibrant and subdued at once.
I graduated in Commerce, Diplomas, in Marketing Management, Advertising & Public Relations, etc from Pune University. An inner urge to paint completed my diploma in Art(Applied).
