Growing up in the city of Mysore – India, I have been influenced by the intricate designs of palaces, majestic temples and exotic gardens. Nature has always been my source of inspiration. Living in Canada, its beauty and untouched natural landscapes have added a new dimension to my creativity. My hobbies include painting, travelling and reading. I enjoy working with oils and acrylic. Painting takes me to a meditative state of peace and contentment.
