I am a wildlife, portrait and figurative artist with a special interest in watercolour. Born and brought up in India, I am now a resident of United Kingdom.
Art has had a constant presence in my life since my early days. I grew up drawing faces and figures and still like to do so. This love for drawing led me to pursue a career in computer animator and illustration; in which I worked for about 15 years. Painting was only a divertissement during this period. In 2011 I decided to give up animation to follow my dream of being a professional artist. Being self taught,it was never going to be easy but things came together slowly with the help and encouragement of some lovely local people, friends and my online art community.Now I am enjoying every minute of this journey,doing what I love.
Figurative work comes naturally to me and painting animals was a natural progression when I wanted to spread my wings a little.What I didn't know at that time was that I would absolutely fall in love with them! My animal paintings are atmospheric and people are able to feel an emotional connection with them, which is the driving force behind my art.They have put me in touch with numerous art lovers around the world, enriching my life in a way it has never been before.I thank everyone who has taken time to connect with me in any way.I hope you enjoy what you see here.
