I studied fine arts in India and continued my passion for creating paintings for last 40 years. After moving to USA, I threw myself into learning a whole new field and worked as a software engineer for 20 years. I founded Brush & Paisley in 2017, with a vision to create art, teach students, and build a community for creative individuals. My signature style as an artist combines my Indian ethnic background with life in New England using my favorite mediums: watercolor, acrylic and oil.
Over the last few years, I have found an incredible community of artists in New England who were supportive of my work, and through it, I have found a new voice to paint. I became the artist in residence at the Brush Gallery and Studios in Lowell, MA a couple of years ago. I started teaching art to children and adults, initially hosting classes in person, and then transitioning to Zoom classes during Covid, where I provided a creative escape for children and parents. I now have students who join from all around the world!

Materials and Techniques
I use oil, acrylic, watercolors and mixed media on various surfaces. My inspiration comes from the many sources: places I travel to, nature, architecture, city life and the people around me.
