About
Encouraged by my parents and grandfather, a painter, I began oil painting lessons at the age of eight and have been making art ever since. I have exhibited my artwork in the U.S. and internationally. Since 2008, I divide my time between Tucson, Arizona and Mumbai, India. 
As a native of Tucson, I grew up immersed in Southern Arizona's beautiful Sonoran Desert landscape. The influence of that desert's color and vastness, combined with my early travels around the world, helped me understand that I innately visualize my surroundings, natural or man-made, in terms of shapes, colors and compositions.
My creative process is an antidote to my tendency to overthink almost everything, as the act of making forces me to be present, favoring what feels right in that instant, instead of insisting on preconceived images and ideas. A painting's magic usually only shines when I follow “mistakes” and “tangents,” using them to navigate the unknown territory of a work in progress.
Multiple layers of textures and colors applied to the same surface come together in unexpected ways, forming a visually cohesive whole. Vivid colors combined with the glittering intensity of iridescent paint and metallic leaf allow me to express my visceral connection to the landscape of the Southwest and to the scapes in my mind. When I play with materials and trust the process, beauty coalesces from the layers of media.
Though many of my prints originate from imagery in my paintings, they are not reproductions of my paintings, but original works of art created digitally. They are printed on aluminum, using a dye sublimation process.
A work of art, for me, can feel immensely satisfying to simply “be” with; it creates its own contained world. Simultaneously, that artwork can invoke real and imagined worlds—spaces of possibility.
