My passion for painting remained a hobby (albeit a paying one) during my 27 years of service in the Indian Army, the most wonderful organization in the whole world. It gave my passion wings and allowed me to pursue and develop my hobby as much as I could. I have been painting for as long as I can remember and did professional skill enhancement courses, including one in 1994 in USA (California Art Institute) focusing on face drawing.

I found myself being able to draw and paint faces better than other forms and so decided to focus on portraiture. As a natural outflow of my passion, I decided to take it up as a profession post retirement.

Internet has encouraged me to become a professional as through my portal I can directly reach out to genuine clientele (without any go-betweens) and I am able to offer reasonable prices for my works.

Costs may not reflect the true value of the paintings.

I look forward to interacting with people with aesthetic tastes, who may like to possess a painting done with passion and with the heart.
