Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up!


Sketching, painting and teaching art is my first, second and third love (not necessarily in that sequence!).

I dabble in various subjects such as landscapes, portraits, figure studies and abstracts, and in various media like Pen & Inks, Watercolors, Oils, Acrylics and Spray Paints.

I have participated in many art exhibitions, and his sketches and paintings are present in private collections in India and various other countries.

I have published some very successful video courses which I produce myself. These courses have helped thousands of students worldwide learn the intricacies of sketching and painting.

My books are available in English, German and Spanish languages worldwide in e-book and print formats.
