ARTIST STATEMENT

Art for me, is my form of expression and I believe life is an art form and that each of us is an artist. We just have  to find our inspirations  from our daily life and nature.

 

I daily practice Zentangle, Zentangle Inspired, Mandala and digital art. Craft is my childhood passion  and I love to create different things.

Currently, I am working on  Zentangle art, India Folk art forms, Craft and Digital art.  Zentangle art is an ink drawing of structured patterns on small size paper tiles. Mandalas are both ink and acrylic paintings. I love to do acrylics paintings on different size canvas with landscapes and Warli art (Indian folk art ). I spend my spare time on paper craft like garlands and home decorations.
