Buy paintings, artworks and home décor accessories on Artezaar.com Online Art Gallery in Dubai UAE.Born in Kandy, Sri Lanka, I did my schooling in Lusaka, Zambia, graduated from Stella Maris College, Chennai, India, and have traveled widely with my husband who is a Marine Engineer. Though never formally taught in art, I always had a penchant for it and it developed into a passionate hobby over the past few years in Dubai. With encouragement from family and friends, I had my first solo exhibition of 30 paintings in Bangalore, India in 2003. When I realized that I could elicit appreciation for my works, I recognized my calling and started experimenting with oils in greater detail, developing basic techniques, improving and improvising. My paintings range from landscapes, seascapes, flowers, horses, Indian village scenes, Feng Shui/ Vaastu related works and the quintessential figures of Buddha and Ganesha.

I believe that a painting should not only brighten up a room, but also a person’s soul. Every painting I begin, I find a new purpose-one that fills me with limitless possibilities that fuels my creativity and brings with it a sense of peace and accomplishment.
