About Artist

I had a good hand in drawing since childhood. As I grew up my love for art grew too. But due to my other personal engagements, art took a backseat for me. Later started realizing that I have a strong passion towards art. It was something very special and close to me and I should rather consider taking it up as a full time career. I feel I can express my feelings easily through it and thoroughly enjoy. From then I started painting full time. I love to work with various mediums like Oil, Acrylic, Charcoal, Mix Media etc. I paint anything which attracts me whether it is a picture or anything in real. I have created almost all kinds of art pieces like landscapes, floral, seascapes, mythological, portraits, street view, abstract, fluid etc and still experimenting different textures/techniques with palette knives, sponges, brushes, fingers etc.
