Since childhood, I have been very much in love with the Arts and have practiced art, observing my interest and skills in drawing and painting, my parents sent me to College of Art in India, I completed 5 graduation courses in fine arts and one year Masters in Fine Arts.
During and after my college days, I continued to expand my painting skills. I completed many landscape oil paintings, which sold very quickly in galleries. This lead to my undertaking of bulk painting projects for hotels and resorts. Subsequently, I then learnt Graphic Art and worked as a graphic designer.
Later, due to full time work and family commitments, my participation in exhibitions and competitions was put on hold. After migrating to Australia, I completed my Masters in Education and began teaching visual arts in high schools.
Since 2016, I have been running an art school at my home for children, and have also resumed my participation in exhibitions and competitions in which I won several awards.
