Being a self-taught artist I draw inspiration from nature and was influenced by it, so much so that I even took up ‘IKEBANA’ for the initial few years, which I must add were very Awarding (pun intended). Apart from nature I get inspired by my dreams too. I have a pencil and pad next to my bed which I use to sketch out my dreams which I later develop into paintings. When I travel I capture the life and moods of the places and express it on canvas. Of late the camera and laptop are my favorite media of inspiration. Thanks to modern technology!
I have held exhibitions and workshops in and around Bangalore (South India). And through these exhibits I have met many talented artists both (Amateur’s and Professionals). These interactions with artists helped me explore and expand my knowledge of drawing and painting with different mediums and techniques. I have had many opportunities to exhibit my work in prestigious centres on the likes of ‘Chitra Kala Parishat’. I was very much encouraged by the visitors and decided to have a one man show the year after (1996) which in turn started my commerce side as well (Thanks to the many Interior Designers and Architects). I now conduct classes in pencil shading, water colours, acrylic painting, charcoal painting, oil painting, glass painting etc.
I believe that this hobby of painting is very exciting and opens the mind to creativity. Creativity is intelligence in other words. For elders it is a source of relaxation and is a stress buster. For children it is understanding nature. The child starts giving a character to things around and learns patience and tolerance through this magical medium of ART.
