Henna Style Textured Acrylic Paintings & Ceramics

I have been creating my one-of-a-kind acrylic paintings in my unique technique of piping paint on canvas & other surfaces from 2010 & exhibiting my works since 2012.

I have been making ceramics since 2021 and apply the similar technique of slip-trailing to create one of a kind pieces.

I create free-hand textured acrylic paintings on canvas, interplaying vibrant colors and form. My highly detailed paintings are based on geometry & inspired by henna designs. 

The symmetry of my paintings comes from a meditative practice of organic repetition & the finished pieces are full of rhythm and color. 

My color palette & the luminous glow of each painting reflects the stunning colors of silk and cotton saris worn by women in South India.
