Art to me is about a beautiful journey of self discovery and a medium to articulate my inner glee. Art is typically experienced by the sense of sight. I would like my art to be experienced through all the five senses by transporting my audience to a place which evokes a certain feeling of joy and a sense of being in the moment. I want you to step into the canvas and breathe in the world within my composition.
I have always had the travel bug. The numerous facets of my visual experiences of nature and landscapes while abroad have translated into ideas for my compositions. I also tend to notice patterns and gravitate towards their rhythm. They fascinate me to an extent that I see patterns where others do not, and I revel in that personal discovery.
For me color is the language of emotions and the medium of my expression. My artwork has always tried to marry the elements of my travel experiences, patterns and color into aesthetically pleasing compositions.
My free spirit draws instinctive influences from nature and consistently challenges the confines between abstraction and representational art to create stylized landscapes I have chosen to coin as 'Transitional Expressionism'
"I paint sometimes as I see it, other times as I imagine it - but always because I am loving it!"
