Born in India, I currently live with my husband and work out of my home studio in Austin, Texas US.
“Your art evokes many feelings, it’s thought provoking”. I hear that all the time. When I create paintings, and when I am surrounded by images that bring a sense of peace, that experience had such an impact on me that I was galvanized to bring such peace to others. I feel that a drop of inspiration or encouragement can become a reservoir of confidence and creativity in one's life. Therefore, I try to work towards one goal; that my art should not only look appealing or entertaining, but also inspire others.
My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience. My background in Psychology makes me want to study people’s personalities, behavior, attitude and lifestyle which inspires me to paint human forms as I feel it evokes many feelings and emotions but at the same time I am a free spirit in my art and therefore don’t want to restrict myself to one style or genre. I believe that this world is beautiful and beauty is all around and I try to capture that beauty through my work.
My paintings have been part of the exhibits in Austin, Dallas, California, New York and soon to be in Paris, France in November. I have sold my paintings to private collectors in US, India and Canada. I have also auctioned my paintings at local fundraisers. To market my art, I use online resources like my website, Facebook, Houzz, Fine Art America, Red bubble, Society6 to name a few. I am also a member of various art organizations and associations in Austin and Dallas.

My Artist Statement

“Your art evokes many feelings, it’s thought provoking”. I hear that all the time. When I create paintings, and when I am surrounded by images that bring a sense of peace, that experience had such an impact on me that I was galvanized to bring such peace to others. A drop of inspiration or encouragement can become a reservoir of confidence and creativity in one's life. Therefore, I try to work towards one goal; that my art should not only look appealing or entertaining, but also inspire others.
Art to me is a way of life. It’s beautiful, intriguing, challenging, exciting, mysterious, joyful and simply wonderful. With every piece I create, I grow in never ending progression.
As an artist I find visual art a very powerful and personal means of visual expression. I find it enlightening. It is my catharsis from the unpredictability of life, inspiring me to continue to see the beauty that surrounds us and reminding me to make the rest of my life the best of my life.
I am a free spirit in my art. Therefore, I don’t want to restrict myself to one genre. My work is my expression of the psychological and emotional interpretation of events.
