I am a visual artist and works in various mediums. 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 simple people, beauty, and culture. I love to experiment with my paintings and styles varies from realistic to abstract.
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 am very thankful for this lovely gift, and I nourish it with paintings, coaching arts and being active in my local art community. 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 use of mediums in visual arts so that one can gain confidence in creative expression through art.
Background & Inspirations:
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.
I love sketching and painting in various mediums, clicking Photographs, designing jewelry, weaving the tapestry, long walks in the city, road trips, travel, beaches, music, dance, cooking meditation. Moreover, I love spending time with my family, my husband and my amazing son, Manav
I hope you will enjoy these painting as much as I enjoyed creating them!
