Joined Craft Tatva: June 2022
As an artist I like to capture a beautiful and positive emotion that lies in every being. I do not merely want to capture the image with my brushes, rather with careful colorful strokes I’d like to add fun in each of my work. I also believe different objects (living/non living) help me add the emotion and message I intend to convey. It’s like a kaleidoscope of colors and patterns. Each canvas has an insightful story to tell.
Focus Areas: Contemporary, Figures, etc.
