Born in Kandy, Sri Lanka, I did my schooling in Lusaka, Zambia, graduated from Stella Maris College, Chennai (India) and have travelled widely with my husband who is a Marine Engineer. Though never formally taught in art, I have inherited some of the artistic genes from my mother and brother who are skilled in fabric painting and charcoal respectively. I always had a penchant for art and it developed into a passionate hobby over the past few years in Dubai. With encouragement from family and friends, I had my first solo exhibition of 30 paintings in Bangalore (India) in 2003. When I realized that I could elicit an appreciation for my works, I recognized my calling and started experimenting with oils in greater detail. Learning from the internet, attending exhibitions and painting for others (according to their home interior requirements), I developed basic techniques and started improving and improvising. My paintings range from landscapes, seascapes, flowers, horses, Indian village scenes, Feng Shui/Vaastu related works and the quintessential figures of Buddha and Ganesha. My speciality lies in customizing artwork according to a particular theme, colour scheme and the budget of the client.
"There is nothing more gratifying than experimenting with vibrant earth colours, painting in shadows, showing the flow of garments, capturing the softness in a horse’s eye or giving the final highlights of the finished artwork. I believe that a painting should not only brighten up a room, but also a person’s soul. Every painting I begin, I find a new purpose-one that fills me with limitless possibilities that fuel my creativity and brings with it a sense of peace and accomplishment."
