Born in the year 1958 at a village called Aladkatti in the then district of Dharwad of Karnataka state in India. I did my high-schooling in Dharwad and went to Pune to study Applied Arts. I finished my Diploma course (1979-80) in Applied Arts from BKP Sabha a university of fine arts & architecture in Maharashtra state.

After finishing my diploma I joined a graphic designing firm in Bengaluru and I have worked with a few reputed advertising agencies holding the posts of artist, visualizer and creative art director till 1997. Since then I have been working as a freelance graphic artist and I work for many reputed publishers designing book covers & illustrations. Digital painting is my new venture and I want to continue with the same. I am sure you will feel comfortable with my paintings & welcome them heartily.
