About

Inspired by culture

Not everyone gets to give up something they love doing to follow something even more challenging and fulfilling. As my post-doctoral research came to an end, I started painting to take a small break from academia. And as it happens with supposed small breaks, my art forms took a life of their own and now two years later, I am pursuing my passion of creating one of a kind paintings in full swing. I am an intuitive artist but every work I create is guided by my roots in the Indian culture. I started painting Kolams with acrylic paint on canvas and found it hard to do little dots & swirly lines with a brush. Hence the idea of combining the technique of henna body art and acrylic paints was born. I squeeze the paint from a piping bag or a squeeze bottle to form the textured dots & lines in my paintings. Over these last two years, my shop has grown from a basement studio / coffee table / dining table work surfaces to a dedicated space - converted from a master bedroom!

Of course I am still very passionate about science - math & biology - and they are reflected in the fractal based sacred geometry works & the abstract animal paintings I create.
