As an artist, I challenge myself to develop paintings that speak both to me and to others about the beauty that                                              exists in the nature around us. Part of my process before I begin painting is to observe the intricacies of  

                                             what I would paint and imagine it in vivid colours that I am about to recreate on canvas. I do not merely    

                                             want to capture the image with my brushes; rather, with careful, colorful strokes, I want to give life new      

                                             meaning.

The work in my horse series with oil on canvas arise organically from making a clay model of a horse and painting distinctive positions with bright and light colour schemes. My horse figures give a mix of real and mystical images inspired by the nature and its behavior. I combine the apparent world with illusory imaginations and give them abstract shapes, lines and colours that suddenly comprise a recognizable figure.

 

I have had the good fortune to live in three countries (India, UAE and Canada) for a number of years and travel to more than 25 countries where the light, sky, general landscape, people their culture and architecture are all so unlike though captivating. My work is inspired by this beauty which is around me everywhere all throughout and is morphed onto canvas, and / or paper. More recently, my work has focused on my own interior landscape, guided by my intuition and emotion.
