Without black, no color has any depth
Without White, there is no brightness
Without colors, there is no life
Together all create life with depth and brightness

I am an artist who focuses on two traditional art forms from India – Madhubani and Warli. I have a Ph.D. in Social Work. While working as a professional social worker back in India, I got exposed to different forms of folk arts in their natural setting and was very inspired by them. I do not have any formal training in art, it was just a hobby. In 2013, when my son turned three, I decided to pursue my hobby as a profession. I started making paintings in Madhubani style and experimenting the fusion with Warli art form. In 2014, I got my first break to do a solo art exhibition at Ameriprise Financial in downtown San Jose for 3 months. In 2015, I won third place in mixed media painting category among 136 artist participants at Monterey Bay Artisans 12” X 12” open invitation competition.   Since then I have been exhibiting my work at art galleries, juried art festivals and craft shows in South bay.
