Being a qualified Chartered Accountant, my career and daily life was far away from paints, brushes, canvas, easel, pencils, papers etc. Once I visited a gallery in Montreal, Canada where a saying of Pablo Picasso was written “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” From there my journey with art started.
Being a self-taught, passionate hobby artist from Bangalore I am fortunate to have the opportunities to stay and travel different countries of Europe, Canada and USA due to my husband’s profession where I learnt some techniques attending few workshops of renowned artists. I attended few workshops in Bangalore, India too.
Started with oil painting in 2013, gradually took interest in Acrylics, Dry pastels, Graphite pencils, Colour pencils. Became passionate about transparent Water colour.
