Painting has been a passion since my school days; I have won many prizes and continue to sustain this passion in me. I've been painting for 20 years primarily for own personal enjoyment, people kept telling me how much they liked me art. So I started selling about 5-6 years ago. Few of them have been successfully auctioned for charitable causes as well. As far as I am concerned, creating art brings joy to life and selling it brings joy to the lives of others. Mostly, paintings are customized to suit the client requirements like size, content and design.
I enjoy painting on canvas and follow a unique technique – using only palette knives with linseed oil base. My Art work has been reviewed by many renowned Art experts including Ms. Shahane, Curator -Tilting Art Gallery, Pune.
Typically my paintings reflect landscapes, still life, cityscapes but I do not see myself limiting to these. My work draws inspiration from great artists like Leonid Afremov, Maxim Grunin and Rembrandt to name a few.
