About

I’m so excited to welcome you to my web site and share my artistic inspirations with you. Here, in addition to the paintings, you’ll find my poems and short stories. I’ll be adding new art often, including art for children, so if you don’t want to miss anything, please subscribe to receive notifications from me. I started doing art when I was very young, and one of the first drawings I remember I did was that of princess Draupadi from children stories from India based on the famous Mahabharata. Even though fine art took back stage in my life later, I never stopped creating or being creative. The biggest inspiration for all my art work comes from nature, especially the way I grew up. We had a huge yard and even bigger neighborhood that was all trees and herbs and so many places to explore. Being exposed to the natural world allowed me to develop a special connection with it for which I’m very grateful. This connection became even stronger when I went to China to study Qigong. I’m very grateful to my parents and grandparents who encouraged me to do the things I was interested in and provided their constant support to me to their best ability. When it comes to art, I’m interested in many subjects, as life is multifaceted and it takes more then a lifetime to explore it. I paint both traditionally and digitally, and use Corel Painter 2020 software for professional digital art. I’m also grateful to all my friends and teachers who’ve inspired me to continue to grow as a digital artist.
