After years of painting everything and anything, I realised that flowers did actually make me feel happy. So I made a conscious decision to paint flowers and this had been my creative fuel for the past few years. The more I paint them, the more I feel there is to explore in terms of both technique and why I find them so fascinating.

Born in Malawi, Africa, to Indian parents, I grew up in England and I now live with my family in Vienna, Austria. I have drawn and painted for as long as I can remember, with a pause while I studied finance at university. My love of art was rekindled by an opportunity to study at the renowned Charles H. Cecil studios in Florence, Italy. This pivotal experience ultimately led me to leave a career in finance to pursue my passion for painting. I now spend my studio time painting and creating art for various markets and companies including Minted, Artfully Walls, Hallmark, Marks & Spencer, Anthropologie, Samsung.

I also enjoy teaching small groups in my studio. In the past, collaborating with florists, I led floral painting workshops in Italy and USA. I hope to offer more of these in person workshops as it is always pleasure to paint alongside other flower enthusiasts.

Infinitely inspired by nature, I hope my signature abstract florals embrace the power of color, a free spirit and the beauty of imperfection.
