I fell in love with my first "People Nip" cat the moment he took life on my computer screen. He winked at me as he chowed down on that big fragrant leaf and dared me to make more felines.

So I took up the challenge. And did.

Originally I am an intensely serious graphic artist and have held ( controversial) shows from New Delhi to Montreal and on to Honolulu.

And a certain degree of forced modesty in the face of such natural genius. Also a sense of humor.

I hope you enjoy these whimsies as much as I enjoy creating them. And I hope Walt's spirit approves too ...

This new shop features my recent highly successful forays into "fusion" printing, which is a totally new genre of art. I am producing dream images combining hyper-realism with expressionism. These lush and gorgeous prints are enjoying great success in galleries and I'm encouraged to offer them for the first time online. Enjoy.

My newest book of short memoirs, "Bird Songs" now available on Amazon.com
