Art has always been my biggest passion since childhood. Although I took up a different career, I had never let my inside artist down. I learned on my own and continued mastering my techniques all the time.
I get immense pleasure while creating realistic wildlife paintings. Complexities and fine details of fur and feathers excites me. Studying and understanding my subject before starting to paint helps me to bring more perfection to my work. I do not want to limit myself and so try to explore different subject matters, techniques and mediums of paintings.
Emotions get involved into the work to such an extent that sometimes it becomes difficult to part with my creations. But one has to keep on growing creating better than the best.
I take classes and workshops for the youngest kids to enthusiastic adults in my home studio and I tell my students, that they shouldn’t try to compare themselves with other artists, but try to be the best they can. Push their limits with each painting and do practice regularly, perfection and success will eventually come and I follow the same principle for myself.
Before being an artist full time, I was an Asst. Professor in an engineering college.
