I was born and raised in Mumbai, India and I spent most of my twenties working for big investment banks in Mumbai, London and New York. Till a watercolor class changed my life path. I am an Indian Chartered Accountant (US CPA) and I hold a finance Masters from the London Business School. But most of my days are now spent with pencils, erasers and paints. Over the past two decades, I have lived in Mumbai, London, New York and Singapore and you can see big city life reflected in most of my work.
From 2009 to 2011, I took adult education classes after work at the New York Academy of Art in Manhattan. My love for watercolors convinced me to leave the world of finance and see where my inspirations take me. I spent over six years in Singapore, working as a watercolour artist and an art instructor. I had two successful solo exhibitions in Singapore in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, I opened my own studio to teach children and adults drawing and watercolours.
