My art is not limited by style or technique as I like to leave it free; it is about what touches my heart. Although I regard my art as a personal journey, I want people around me to experience it as well. I do not subscribe to complicated concepts as my idea of art is simple beauty. The common element that runs through all my works is to put a smile on the viewer's face.
I use primarily acrylics and mixed media for my work. My works create a visual rhapsody of colour and strokes that come to life on canvas. My palate includes a variety of reds ,blues and greens that tend to enthrall the viewer. The uplifting patterns which enhance the artwork create a multidimensional effect.
During the past few years, I have participated in many art shows, mostly in and around Delhi and have won great appreciation from art lovers and critics alike. I have an art studio by the name of Shruti Arts and have been a part of several national and international exhibitions, contributed my artworks for noble causes, judged art competitions, participated in various art workshops, collaborated with interior designers and have had two solo art shows. In the time to come, I hope to achieve even more and continue inspiring people though my artworks.
