I took my first drawing and painting classes in Surat, India, and have been painting since. I began painting in oil in 1974. Although I started my career in Accounting field, I have been actively pursuing painting as a hobby. After doing a number of free-lance exhibits, I was invited to join Gujarat Kala Pratishthan, a prestigious art academy in Gujarat, India.
I started with natural landscape, and my artwork is usually inspired by thoughts of normal people and interpretation of world. I try to capture the grace and beauty of his subjects, and hope viewers of his paintings can share in the happiness. My artwork has been displayed in a number of exhibitions throughout Gujarat.
I have also been teaching water color and oil painting in India.
