Her Perception on Art in Her Own words….

Art is everywhere and most importantly in the natural world around us. My art is a declaration of my deep connection with Nature, with light, with God. I am a spiritual human and therefore painting nature is one of my greatest delights. It gives me immense pleasure to paint flowers as they I feel are symbols of beauty and perfection created by God. They inspire me to be happy in every circumstances and they, I know will be smiling forever through my works. Inspired by the impressionists, I see things and objects as impressions of colour. I love to be expressive with my bold strokes and colours. I love to paint in watercolours as they are very spontaneous and allow me to paint every day. I never try to copy a scene,  I like Interpreting it  in my  way. Feel as if it is dipped out of paint. A perfect painting consist of Shapes, Colours, Values, Edges, Composition, Feeling and Brushwork. It will come with constant practice. I believe anyone can achieve any mastery if one preaches and practice it daily.
