I am a visual artist and Designer. I like to work with various mediums - Watercolors for its fluidity, Acrylic paints for its vibrancy, textures and versatility, Oil paints for its earthiness and timeless look, and  Textiles decorative and wearable arts. Art and creativity have always been part of me, even as a child. To enhance my inner artist, I studied Arts and Design at Sir JJ School of Arts, Mumbai, and Fashion Styling at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), NY. My paintings & textile art are inspired by my multicultural background, nature, culture, people, lifestyle, and travels. Being of Indian origin, I often paint my subjects inspired by India, highlighting the people, beauty, and culture. I love to experiment with my paintings and styles.

I believe that my paintings are an experience. A ray of light to bring joy, happiness, smile, beauty, and gratitude, even in things that appear insignificant and invisible during our busy lives. I truly believe art has a quality to relax, transform, heal, add positivity, and encourage creative thinking. I have been exhibiting my paintings solo and with Art groups here in Austin from the past 5 years. I being active in my local art communities in Austin and also local charity fundraising events. I am currently an active member of Waterloo Watercolor Group, 620 Art Group, and Steiner Paints art groups in Austin

I moved to Austin with my family in July of 2015 from Long Island, NY. Here at Austin, I established my private studio Art Chakra, LLC. At the studio, I conduct art classes, art workshops, art courses for all age groups. I truly believe art has a quality to relax, transform, heal, add positivity, and encourage creative thinking. My art coaching is based on teaching art basics, techniques, and the use of mediums in visual arts so that one can gain confidence in creative expression through art. I am very thankful for this lovely gift, and I nourish it with self-developing paintings and coaching arts. My art coaching is based on teaching art basics, techniques, and the use of mediums in visual arts so that one can gain confidence in creative expression through art.
