I am a self taught artist,I am interested in Wildlife Photography ,Birds and Lepidoptera in particular.I used to be in what seems like a lifetime ago an Officer of the Indian Army, during that period I traveled extensively the length and breadth of this rich , diverse and crazy country that we call India and I still continue to do so. I have lived and worked in its northern most areas,i.e Kashmir and Ladakh,to its southernmost state kerala,from the western most state of Gujarat to its 'far east' state, Arunachal Pradesh.This has given me enough fodder to fire my artistic imagination.So after leaving the army I have pursued my desire to revel in the wonder that is 'Indian wildlife' ,through the medium of photography and painting.(I would like to add here that all the photographs of the birds, reptiles,butterflies etc that you see on my profile have been taken in the wild, none of them are of animals in captivity)I also have an abiding Interest in the Dances of India, particularly the 8 classical dances(I am a trained Bharatanatyam dancer, and I have also learnt Mohiniyattam, the classical dance of Kerala the state that I come from),I also teach Bharatanatyam to young students nowadays.My interest in the art form of dance has fed my desire to capture the human form and expressions,which has lead me to explore its various subtleties through 'Portraiture' and 'figure' painting.I work with various media because each one has its merits.I also do commissioned paintings,please feel free to contact me regarding these or other works.
