I grew up in a family that loved to draw and color. I took up formal art classes in college and earned a Masters degree from Punjab university where I taught for next seven years and later three at a girls college. It was during my teaching years that I explored myself as an artist with better understanding of seeing and omitting. For next 30 years of painting my colors and strokes evolved and as they adapted through my exposure to different art and places. I feel that now I only take charge of selecting a subject and my painting leads me through the process.
