I’m Mangalore born, brought up in Mysore, India. I've always been into Painting and drawing from an early age. I am not formally trained in an Art school, but had opportunities to learn from a couple of artists. I graduated from Mysore University in science. Life took me in a different direction from setting up mushroom cultivation industry to working on interior designing and exterior landscaping projects. In 2012, I decided to have a career change and started to devote more time to painting and drawing. I have painted mainly with acrylics, oil and gouache. I have done commissioned works in Paintings, Embossed murals, Wall art in acrylics, Wall sculptures and Digital Painting.

I took up colored pencils in mid 2018. I instantly liked colored pencils, as they are a clean medium and also very convenient to carry them. I am trying out with various tools and technique in colored pencils on different supports.

I became a member of UKCPS in the month of April 2019. It was a feel good thing to have my artworks exhibited at UKCPS 18th Annual Open Exhibition 2019 at Richmond and 16th World of Colored Pencil Exhibition 2019 at Keswick
