Why I do what I do

I miss colour. Growing up in India I was surrounded by exciting colours, something I did not appreciate until I moved to UK more than 3 decades ago. In particular, I miss the luxury of saris. Life in UK gives me less occasions for this indulgence.

As an artist, I am constantly looking for avenues to recreate the visual gratification of India, particularly the vibrance of saris. I respond to the inspiring landscape that surrounds me - Dorset - my home, and India, where I visit often. I may be painting Dorset but my palette allows me to be in India. It is as if I am wrapping the landscape with the richest silk sari I can conjure up, transforming it to a frame filled with loss and nostalgia for where I was born.
