The imagery involves ‘Girl with a turban’ , ‘Reclining figures under the starlit skies’ , ‘ friends playing a game of marbles’ , ‘sculptures from ancient temples’ and numerous creative portraits of vibrant women.
The use of earthen monochromatic colours at times fusing with the vibrant bright ones and her unique style which is very narrative and appealing conveys her story most eloquently. Dry brushing and at times thick knife application of oil paints gives a convincing depth to her works.
These techniques have helped her create the feeling of languorous comfort and easy pace, away from the rush of the rat race outside. We invite you to come and be a part of her rich and peaceful world.
