Painting has been my hobby since childhood. I have secured an 'A' grade in the Intermediate Art exam at school level. I consider myself lucky to get guidance from my art guru - Mrs. Anagha Ratnaparkhi and Mr. Bhupendra Iyer, both alumni of J.J. School of Art, Mumbai - a highly renouned institution. Water colors , transparent colors have been my favorite medium. Also tried my hand at powder colors , pencil shadings (lead and charcoal) and oils colors .Lately I have learnt a most rare art style Nail Art. I involves embossing on paper with the finger nails to give the desired depth and curves to create sculpture-like effect on paper. In December 2005, I did my first ever Art Show Art-in-Sync at Persistent Systems, a live art show on stage with the brush flowing on the rhyme and theme of music.
