About her Art Style
I think I can very well relate myself to the impressionists. There way of seeing and interpreting as if the scene is made out of impressions or droplets of paint is what connects me to them. I paint in all mediums but Watercolors are my favourite. The most fascinating thing about painting in watercolours is their spontaneity and the Transparency of the Medium.
It gives me immense pleasure to paint flowers as they I feel are symbols of beauty and perfection created by God. They inspire me to be happy in every circumstances and they, I know will be smiling forever through my works. I love to experiment though and maybe in future you would see me painting different subjects too.
