“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time….”
– Thomas Merton
Everyone has a unique story to tell. Mine began in India and my journey brought me here to the Peninsula where I now call home. A part of my journey, my experience, can always be found in my paintings. Realistic painting is where I started, but I followed my heart and began developing abstract art. Painting is a deeply personal experience, sometimes therapeutic, and abstract painting has allowed me to express myself freely. I am drawn to bold, vibrant reds, oranges and blues to better capture a certain thought or emotion. I often use textures in the same way.
I am excited to be sharing my work with you. I hope you will find something in my work that connects with a part of your own journey. It is my hope, for just a moment, my painting triggers an emotion in you, a memory, and we connect, your journey and mine, sharing our lives through art.
For the past two years I have painted scenery of real places I have traveled to. I have a passion for capturing the beauty of God’s creation onto canvases with my paint brush, and I love to share these landscapes with people who admire nature. I began with using acrylic as my medium and have been slowly transitioning to oil. I use acrylic as a base and apply thicker oil color on top to bring out the best of both paints. I look forward to sharing my art with you.
