Background

You could say that I took the scenic route to get to where I now stand on my career path. I decided to leave the finance industry after my second son was born, to live ‘the creative life’ and I can now happily say that I am a painter. I was born in Malawi, Africa, to Indian parents, I grew up in England and I now live with my family in Vienna, Austria. This exposure to various cultures throughout my life reflects in my work being a blend of Asian and European influences and sensibilities.

Statement

I am infinitely inspired by nature, from the tiniest vein on a petal to the vast expanse of a sunrise sky. My work embraces color, a free spirit and the beauty of imperfection.
"It’s all about doing what I love doing, showing other people what I see and making their space a little bit more beautiful".
