I am a self-taught artist living in a very populous city called Pune, in a very populous country called India.
I have worked in the thriving Indian software industry for more than two decades. But art is my main passion (apart from family, books, movies, scuba diving, traveling, and writing, not necessarily in that order!).
I am actively involved in fine arts, graphic novels, animated graphic novels, and short film making, I work in several media like pen & ink, watercolors, oil colors, acrylics, and digital. I sketch and paint various themes like landscapes, figures, portraits, and urban sketches. I am an active member of the Urban Sketchers community.
I have written several bestseller art instruction books. You can see a catalog of all my books here:
I regularly conduct workshops for sketching and have participated in several exhibitions. My sketches and paintings are present in private collections in India as well as in other countries.
