Representing galleries,,

Born in Chennai (India) on October 22, 1953 I was raised in Vijayawada(Andhra Pradesh, India). Although I was keenly interested in art as a child and won prizes in painting competitions etc. held in school, my parents deemed that art was not career worth pursuing. Consequently I qualified as a Chartered Accountant. I held various positions in reputed corporates in India and abroad. In 1995 I set up shop as an independent Chartered Accountant. After successfully practising as an auditor, I took up voluntary retirement in 2007/08 to pursue my first love - painting; and here I am.

After retirement I have taken up Painting as a full time vocation. I have started painting only in the year 2008. I do only Oil Paintings either on Canvas or Canvas Board. I am completely self taught.  I am a total amateur :-) I sign all my paintings as E. Ramki. I try to reflect the spirit of India in my paintings. Rural Indian Charms constitute the main suject matter in a majority of paintings. As I am widely traveled the scenes that encounter during my travels also constitute the subject matter of my paintings. Indian performing arts also inspire me - as does its mytholgy. The form of Nataraja is a great inspiration too.

Having had no formal training in art, I do not hold any Degrees, Diplomas or Cerificates in art. I am still waiting for my first exhibition to be held - if the right break comes along! However, I have uploaded my work to a few online art galleries of which one is mentioned above.

Future shows:

Depends on finding the right sponsors and the right galleries - if my work is of the right standard! :)
