Besides working with acrylic on canvas and paper in my painting practice, I am also a certified art-based therapist. My mentor and guru is renowned artist-writer Akhilesh, and I have till date been part of young artist camps, worked with youth collectives and held art facilitation workshops for children, whether in villages or at-risk young ones on urban streets. Storytelling projects with them satisfy me deeply. Art to me is therapeutic. It helps me see my own inner space and the world in a better light. Though I draw in abstract lines, nature and animals attract me as motifs and inspirations. I also find in my art a configuration to my journey, both as an artist as well as in life overall.
