Welcome to my website! I am primarily self-taught Watercolour artist living in Reading, Berkshire. I enjoy the medium because of its immediacy and wonderful luminosity. I attempt different styles and techniques and find myself drawn to the impressionistic style of painting. I enjoy painting different subjects like landscapes, citiscapes, flora and fauna; although I don't limit myself particularly to these subjects. Any subject with varying degrees of contrast and tonal values attract me. I am always in the search for a 'perfect' subject specially during my travels . I enjoy working from photo references as well as plein air painting. I feel inspired by watercolour painters of today and their different styles. I am a member of Art Societies in my area which are thriving and active societies and have frequent exhibitions, demos and workshops.
Please have a look at my gallery and find out out more about my paintings and my style. If any particular painting catches your fancy, please feel free to get in touch with me.
