Artist Statement :
Though having an educational background of hotel management, I always wanted to paint. With no formal education in the art field, I was grateful to have guidance of yesteryear artist the late Madhukar Chapekar for a few years until he passed away. A gap of 8 years later I did a water colours workshop with renowned artist Milind Mulick and consider myself lucky to have him as my teacher. What started as a hobby is now gaining momentum in the right direction. I love to paint with watercolor, acrylics and oil. I have held three exhibitions till date. I feel proud to say that my paintings have been bought by people from Australia, Bangalore and the UK.
Painting is may passion and I love to paint whatever is in front of me. My subject is usually a still life or a landscape. The mood, the atmosphere, the rhythm of life can be found in most delicate patterns of shade and light. I feel emotional involvement in any painting is very necessary.
