I’m a physician and artist. I was born in Gujarat, India, but grew up in New Jersey, and now live in Massachusetts, in a little town with classic New England charm. I enjoy sketching in pencil and with grayscale markers, painting in oil, and photography, especially when I travel. I am mostly self-taught, but I enjoy taking classes and workshops with other artists since I haven’t had much formal training. I am inspired by nature, people, travel, and others’ beautiful artworks. Painting is a meditative experience for me. I paint scenes I love and enjoy the opportunity to study them in detail over the hours I spend on the works.
