"Life is a travelling to the edge of knowledge, then a leap taken." - D. H. Lawrence

Rajasthan remains one of the most intriguing places in India for me. The princely state is replete with mesmerizing forts and palaces speaking of many tales of the bygone era. Enduring the unmerciful desert winds and oppressing heat of the scorching sun, they have stood unshakable many sieges and have provided a safe haven for the rulers in the conflicting times. The colorful state reminds us of the victories and conquests of the rulers. The glory is well preserved in the people of Rajasthan and in the majestic forts and palaces. The architecture of Rajasthan is unique and is based on the Rajput school of architecture which was a blend of Hindu and Mughal structural design. The Rajputs were prolific builders. Some of the imposing and magnificent forts and palaces in the world dot the arid Aravali landscapes and tell the tales of their glorious legacy.

The interplay of light and shadows on the architectural marvels have always captivated me and have compelled me to transform the magic in my paintings. The havelis and jharokhas have found a special place in my paintings. Jharokhas are types of overhanging enclosed balconies found in havelis, temples and palaces in Rajasthan. In the ancient times, the women in purdah could see the events outside without being spotted themselves. The golden hued jharokha of Jaisalmer have been depicted in one of my paintings.

Camels, also known as the ship of desert are also subjects of my paintings. This animal has been used by princes since time immemorial to highlight royalty and regality. Camels are embellished by the camel owners to attract the youth to travel across the arid Thar desert of Jaisalmer. Embellished camels along with their owners are a subject of my paintings. They are a part and parcel of the arid landscape. The hospitality of the people has always touched my soul. Their smiling faces, long moustaches, their colorful attires, their vibrant turbans in their unadulterated forms have become favorite subjects of my artworks.

The serpentine lanes and by lanes of Jaisalmer, langas and manganiars of western Rajasthan playing the kamaicha  the bowed lute, the colorful bylanes of Jaisalmer abundant with handicraft items ,the tired shepherd leading the herd of sheep through the fields, the eternal glory of Mehrangarh fort ,ruins of Chittorgarh reminding of the jauhar of queen Padmini ,Sariska forests replete with flora and fauna ,Ranthambore national park, the camel owners of Pushkar fair are the  subjects of my paintings.
