I am a portrait and figurative artist with a love for nature and wildlife. Born and brought up in India, I now live in Basingstoke,United Kingdom.
I am largely self taught and have learned by observing, practicing and experiment. Art has had a constant presence in my life whether as a hobby or my previous job as a computer animator and illustrator. My career as a professional artist took off about five years ago when I held my first solo exhibition in Basingstoke, in year 2011.It encouraged me to become a full time artist and now I enjoy spending every waking hour creating art.
From graphite pencils to pastel; and from oils to watercolors; I have experimented with almost every medium but its watercolor that has charmed me the most by its freshness and spontaneity.Lately I have been experimenting with impressionism, painting loose and expressive rather than realistic.It works well for my animal paintings which have been appreciated and well received by a large section of people around the globe.These are atmospheric paintings and people are able to feel an emotional connection with them, which is the driving force behind my art.I hope you enjoy my work.Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.
