I like to paint natural light and shadows, which creates visual impact. Birds, animals and children in the natural surroundings is something that adds life to my paintings. I am always in search of shapes and colors that gives feeling of joy.
While studying applied art, I learned Illustrations. I have worked as a Graphic Designer in India and Canada. Being a commercial artist did not stop me from doing Masters in Fine Arts where I actually started experimenting with variety of mediums like Water, Acrylics, Pastels and Clay.
This theme show "Reflections" is showcase of paintings done in watercolour and acrylics. This show is series of paintings of boats, marina and nearby area. I hope the viewer experiences joy of visualizing these beautiful outdoor spaces as they see my paintings. Working outdoor for these paintings gave me feeling of being one with nature and getting immediate feedback and appreciation from people. This feedback gave me positive vibes, which encouraged me to create better art.
