Tell us a little bit about yourself and your work. 

I have been a part of the corporate industry for over 10 years. Honestly, I don’t remember, but I loved drawing, scribbling and playing with colours. My first tryst with paints and brushes was in my own room- walls, cupboard, study table, doors. Everything was my canvas.
Painting came naturally to me. I started painting in my free time and now I m a full time artist.


My paintings are inspirational, soothing and they have a healing way to deal with meditation. My paintings give a peaceful and beautiful ambience around the house. They are splash of vibrant colours which easily matches with any upholstery hence it is very easy on the eye.


Please share details of some of your projects. 


I paint the wind; the wild movement of grasses and the tree, the swirling clouds and the feel of the day, the houses nestle into the mountain, almost a part of them. Not only observing solid objects in the landscape. I’m interested in painting the light and colours of landscapes as they change through seasons, the time of day or weather. Seascapes feature strongly in my work as I love the coast. Cosmic art depicts the various colours of the earth and the cosmos.


Any challenges you face in your profession? 


One skill of the best artists knows when to leave their creation alone and walk away. A painting can be perfect and then destroyed with more brush strokes. A book can have a chilling ending and then be ruined with one more chapter.


There are plenty of things in the pipeline. Art show being one of them. I plan to hold one this year. 


How you manage your personal and professional life? 


I have lived on my own throughout my professional career. It is v easy for me to balance between work and home as I am used to it. I know when to disconnect myself from unimportant tasks and focus on doing the thing which is most important at that point in time. 


What are your favorite books that you would recommend SIW family? 


Wild – Cheryl Strayed , Bossy pants – Tina Fey, Savage Beauty – Vincent Milay 


What advice would you give to young women readers of SIW who want to follow a similar career path as you? 


My only advice to all the women is that you must stay focused on what you want to achieve and strive hard to achieve it without getting pulled in different directions.  Define goals, make an action plan and act on it, even if you fail a couple of times initially, learn to ignore your mistakes and most importantly don’t ever give up!
