I paint vibrant women portraits celebrating their beauty, strength and diversity. Art is like meditation to me. It helps me connect with my inner self and brings me peace. I draw inspiration from everyday women I meet, read about and the ones I've had around me growing up. My art is influenced by Indian and African culture, graffiti, New York Streets and just about anything spontaneous.
