How did you learn your craft?
I studied Fine Art and Illustration. I went to College of Fine Art and Design in India and have a Bachelors in Fine Art degree and I also have a Masters in Fine Arts with a specialization in communication design.
Your process? Do you think about all steps first, prepare a plan and execute it, or do you just improvise?
My process is varied as my subject. A lot of times it is spontaneous, instinctive. I love to draw and paint intuitively. Moods, feelings and associations play a big role in my art. I love abstracting these moods feelings and emotions.
Abstracting nature comes very intuitively. I love color and a lot of times things come together very spontaneously, surprising me with the end result.
I also like planning some of pieces. I sketch them out, doodling constantly. I try textures before applying them. I like to layer, explore, perfect a line, shape or form before applying them in my art.
Do you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert?
I would like to think of myself as an extrovert, but I love to internalize a lot, I like solitude, silence, like the quiet that comes when I stop, still and listen to my self think.
If you could not be a maker what would you be doing?
I would most certainly have been in literature, journalism or languages if I were not an artist. I love words, love to write. I wrote poetry, articles, stories and still continue to write to keep my love for the written word alive.
If you won the lottery would you still continue to make stuff and sell it?
If I were to ever win the lottery, I would never stop drawing or creating. Once a maker, always a maker. My hands, mind are always in motion. I would love to make more art. Explore more, things k out of the box, scale and blur the boundaries between median. No amount of money could ever change that.
What does retirement mean to you?
I hope I go into my twilight years with a brush in my hand, paint splattered fingers and continuously pushing myself to create. The best part of choosing to live my passion is that there is no expiration date. I will always be an artist, infinitely.
If you had to choose your spirit animal, what would it be?
my spirit animal would have to be a zebra. I guess the fact that they are black and white and beautiful has something to do with it.
And your favorite fruit?
My fav fruit has to be blueberries. Power packed, intense and good for you
