    Sketchbook enthusiast, art lover, illustrator, and painter, living in the great Northwest and enjoying all it has to offer. You’ll find me scribbling in bars and restaurants, sketching on street corners, doodling along riverbanks and painting in my studio.  Originally from Jersey, I’ve called Oregon my home for the past 15 years.

    Mom, teacher, artist? Guess so! My art is primarily photography, resin work, and digital drawings. I love capturing motherhood/parenthood and all of the joys that come with it. 🙂

    I come from a family of artists. My father, a well-known artist in southern India has been my source of inspiration and encouragement. My husband and I moved to Portland in 1997 and we have raised our children in the Bethany area. I took a break from serious artistic endeavors to be a stay at home mother. Since then, I picked up my paints and brushes, my first passion.

    I find inspiration in Oregon’s scenic beauty which I often capture in photographs, to paint.

    I now primarily work in watercolors and acrylics. I have been with Village Gallery of Arts since 2017 where I learn from and enjoy my community of fellow artists. In this recent Covid times I  started my creative journey on Instagram and I joined WSO as well.

    I’ve been in the Forest Grove/Cornelius area for 14 years and lived in Oregon all my life. I decided to start painting about 5 years ago, so I’m still sort of a beginner. I am not sure I have a painting style yet, I guess it would be “Whimsical”.  I love supporting local small businesses, and  participating in local markets especially around the holidays!
