My paintings capture essential spirit of nature. I paint, big, bright colorful abstract paintings in acrylic, which are spontaneous, expressive and full of joy, my paintings have the sense of freedom and possibility and excitement. They are textual, both tactile and visual. Influence for my colors is from my Indian heritage, and inspiration is from the beauty around me.
I am an intuitive abstract painter, I like to paint abstract as it allows me to express my interpretation of what I am seeing, hearing and feeling, and at the same time it also gives the viewer freedom to put their own interpretation from their perspective. I start my paintings with an intention and stop when I feel the intention has been expressed on the canvas.
Painting has been part of my life since childhood, but didn’t start painting till a few years ago, when I told my little twins boys that they can be anybody they want when they grow up and one of them asked me “Mama what do you want to be when you grow up?” It was a wakeup call for me, to NOT wait till I retired, to do what I have been wanting to do all my life.
I was born and raised in India and came to the US to complete my education as an adult. When I am not painting, I am a Mama to elementary age twin boys and an accountant. Using both sides of my brain keeps me sane.
