Artist’s Statement

I am an artist from Pune, India.  Through art I capture the beauty of fleeting moments in the natural world. Nature, unharmed by humans, has been my constant source of inspiration.
The textural feel that oils and acrylics produce, especially when applied with palette knife, make them my mediums of choice. I use watercolors less often and only when the painting demands transparency.  At times I express my feeling in three dimensions by sculpting with clay.
My paintings invite the viewer to share the joy I felt while capturing the overall experience of the moment.

Current work
I am currently working on a series of paintings based on Kanha National Park. I visited this park in Feb 2010 and till now I have made 10 paintings based on my experience there.
