I am a very passionate self taught watercolor artist and have won several awards internationally. I have been painting in different mediums like watercolor, acrylic, oil and others since a very early age. Over the last few years, my focus had been on watercolor painting mostly on landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes though I occasionally paint flowers, birds, cars and boats. My favorite subjects are boats and water. I love capturing a story and portraying it to the audience with my pronounced skill of brushstrokes through a beautiful medium such as watercolor and many other.

I have been teaching for many years now and feel proud to have been able to motivate and teach several students. Teaching not only helps my students but it also keeps me going and enables me with learning something new with every painting that I do. I love to experiment and encourage everyone to learn through experiment.
All my artworks are original and done in watercolor artist quality paints on high quality paper mostly from Saunders, Arches, Fabriano, Canson, Windsor & Newton, Hahnemuhle or Indian Handmade - 300 gsm, 100% cotton and acid free paper. Colors that I use are from highest quality pigments from Windsor & Newton, Sennelier, Van Gogh & Camlin.

My paintings are greatly inspired by places that I visited or from memories. I mostly produce my artworks from my imagination and rarely from a reference photograph. All my paintings are signed on the front. I will also sign on the back of the painting and send it with a signed certificate of authenticity.

I also donate some part of my proceeds to charity for good cause and it makes me happy.
