To catch a fleeting moment of life in painting is like grabbing the passing breeze in your palm. You just feel it and float with it. There remains very little scope of analyzing. Just feel it's presence and it's being there for a while.

          My works speak of some moments and some glimpses from life, some beautiful memories and feelings. These moments might not be eventful happenings but significant moments that make life colorful and cheerful and sharpen your sensibility. The joy of creating a mud house for a child is as good as making his own house decorated with cloth flags, twigs and flowers!

The joy of running through the lush green fields, the bright mustard flowers peeping through the greens, the joy of watering a plant, the joy of feeding grains to birds of fishes.... are good enough reasons to fill life with excitement.

My paintings depict a sense of wonder, have a tinge of humor and joy through humans and animals. These impersonalized humans speak my emotions and feel my feelings. Animals add the joy and create a story that floats on my canvases.

          The pleasant amalgamation of the aesthetics of these moments and the various forms, textures and colors create a fairy tale and a kaleidoscopic world in my works.

Mind taking a trip of the unseen:

Pure heart pouring out,

In search of some wonders....

My brush traveling on the canvas,

Exploring strange, unknown forms,

On an adventure without norms,

Forms that flow, ideas that float....

Something to happen, some unknown path to be traveled,

But joy and wonder at each stop,

A unique experience!!!!
