"My childhood and adolescence in India have played a decisive role in my life as a painter. I grew up in in a beautiful city with gardens and rivers and architecture from earlier centuries and my daily life as a child was saturated with vast doses of the natural world, extended family and Indian mythology. I emigrated to the US as a teenager and eventually became a lawyer. However, once I discovered oil painting and printmaking, there was no turning back.
Painting allows me to explore the mysteries of Nature. It allows me to explore colors and texture. It allows me to explore what it means to exist, love and suffer in our world. To experiment on linen and wood and textile-like papers with hand-made oil paints, charcoal from forests, and pigments from around the world is all part of my daily work! Climate issues, human identity, spirituality, beauty and religion are some of the topics explored in my paintings. I find the resilience, courage and creativity of the human spirit incredibly inspiring and remain infinitely spellbound by the experience of existing, within nature, on this planet."
