My daily routine in the United States consists of working all day in my studio. When I started to spend several months in Mumbai, India, I decided to follow the same routine and set up a studio space in a bedroom of my small apartment there. Often, however, due to the poor lighting and extreme heat I collect my materials and move onto the covered balcony with its breathtaking view of the city. I have painted there, for hours on end, relishing the monsoon with its downpours and strong breezes.
Indian art is thriving internationally and the art scene in Mumbai is very lively. I am being represented by Art Musings Gallery and participated in their group exhibition in April 2006. In addition I was invited to participate in Cymroza Art Gallery's 35th Anniversary Exhibition in October 2006 and was honored to exhibit alongside senior artists Hussein, Sabavala and Shrestha, as well as many other established Indian artists.
I was invited by the Museum Society of Mumbai to give a lecture on "An Artist's Perspective On Appreciating Contemporary Art" in April 2008 at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, (formerly the Prince of Wales Museum). The lecture/discussion was also given at Gallery Beyond, which has exhibited my work in group shows in 2008.
I exhibited my paintings with Gallery Art Motif in New Delhi in October 2008 and am in their December 2008 group show of Works on Paper along with K.G. Subramanyan, Ganesh Haloi, Ram Kumar and Sudhir Patwardhan I am currently working towards a solo show with the gallery in 2009.
