student of fine arts at the Abhinav College of Arts,
Pune ,I became acquainted with different aspects of

as-portrait painting, poster designing, still life

sketching in pen, pencil, or charcoal is an art which
However, Portrait painting, sketching and

They say that Marriage is an important phase in the life of a
young girl. Marriage changes her life forever. Not being an
exception for this rule, even my life underwent a major change
when I got married .However, fortunate that my professional
life was also witnessed a drastic transition ,when I moved
over to London, soon after marriage. Now ,the sky seems a
limit to me.
Born and brought up in the classical Indian art background, I
was excited and enthusiastic to get to know the art and
culture of London which is world famous and evident through
its numerous galleries. I not only gained more knowledge about
art in this country but also got an opportunity to show my
talent and potential here. Soon the artist in me gained
recognition and now I am engaged in making paintings on
traditional Indian themes, which meet the demands for my
patrons in London.
Today when I look back and retrospect on my life, as compared
to that of any other young girl , I see myself as self-
contended, happily cherishing my artistic dreams, aspiring to
make them real and succeeding in the process.
Aristotle says, "Pleasure in the job puts perfection
in the work ."
I enjoy my work and I always want to be perfect , so I
put in the best of my efforts in any painting that I
take in my hand. My studio is therefore the place
where I work and enjoy.
My studio is my own room with a small window from
where I can relish upon the beautiful scenery outside.
It is a peaceful room which gives me a perfect
atmosphere to concentrate on my work -to transfer the
mental images into a piece of artwork .
A cup of warm coffee and my favorite music playing in
background stimulates me to work continuously.
However, Creativity in art comes from trust. I trust
completely my instincts and that helps me add innovative touch
to my paintings.
Finally ,I believe that the secret of my success lies behind
the hard work I undertook along with my determination and
dedication for my work. Not forgetting the faith I had in
myself, my potential & my instincts which helped me to reach
where I am today.
