"It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection."
- Bhagavad Gita
The meaning of home has always held some fascination for me.
This space associated with security and comfort, yet, it is also the place where many of us experience the most abuse.
Growing up in India, I always felt inherently different. I constantly felt like I had to fit into a culture which demanded the female act a certain way. Think a certain way. Behave a certain way.
Perhaps that's why I was always drawn to solitary acts like writing and painting to express myself.
Contemplation and solitude are overriding themes in my work, and frequently have a connection to nature, and to the self.
My paintings invite the viewer into a non - judgmental space. A space that is tolerent, welcoming, safe and nurturing.
Here you can linger awhile.
Stay as long as you like, and be free to be you.
Ultimately, I hope my work can serve as a gentle reminder that the home we seek, and the comfort we yearn for, has always existed within us.
