Portraits of Indian women address issues of identity and womanhood more directly within the context of my heritage and my adopted western culture. With these portraits, I hope to communicate an inner strength and evoke a primeval reaction. As a product of three nations, I am excited to paint and explore Indian women and their lives from a historical and contemporary perspective – from the Maharaja’s dancing girls to the untouchables and the young girls here today.
My medium is largescale oil on canvas.
