Art and Travel
Raised in India, living, studying and working overseas has rendered me hopelessly enamored of travel in all its forms. Painting I come late to but not drawing. I have loved to draw since childhood.
Flying into London I managed to stumble into eight years of modeling which proved to be a near perfect combination of creative work and travel.
Travel became embedded in my life - it informed my work and, at times, became part of my work.
My Marilyn Tribute
Back in the US, fate (and a leap of faith), prompted me to start a yacht charter and special events company - "Nautical Destinations" - along with my business partner, Lynne.
Successful years of fun and excitement ended with the sale of NDI in the spring of 2007. Travel moved back to the forefront and became the focus of life until a wonderful trip to the Isle of Skye sent me spiraling into the world of watercolor.
