I am a self taught artist, Public health dentist, a trained Indian classical dancer and love to express myself through my dance and art.
I enjoy travel and have lived in different countries. During the course of my travels and work, I have had the privilege of interfacing with people across all levels of society, specially with women. I have heard their many stories. I have heard of their struggles, their joys, their beliefs, their love, their superstitions..and I have wanted to shareable of this.
So, my work provides an emotional window to this beautiful creation - woman and is an ode to her.
By exploring the different lenses of culture, mythology and religion, I express the myriad of emotions which define her. She dons many hats that test the limits of her endurance.
She could be as mythical as a goddess or celestial being, or as real as your girl next door, but, she is the center of all my art.
My art is a humble attempt at capturing her essence and is my tribute to her....
I work with oils and charcoal and currently live in New Jersey.
