My artistic inclination stems from an early age when my mother, Mrs. Geeta Chaudhary, inspired me to participate in the "All India Camel Color Contest." Winning the first prize at such a tender age was a turning point in my life. This early recognition sparked my interest in art, leading me to explore various subjects and mediums over the years.
My artistic journey began during the global pandemic when I took a break from my corporate career to paint. With the world shutting down and my family adapting to homeschooling and remote work, I was presented with a unique opportunity. During those 75 days, I dedicated myself to painting, undisturbed by distractions. Determined to make the most of this time, I set a goal to create a specific number of paintings. Remarkably, I not only achieved that target but surpassed it. What started as a 3-month sabbatical turned into a prolific period of creativity, leading me to create a significant number of paintings.
Encouraged by my family, I ventured into the world of professional art, showcasing my work in galleries and exhibitions. I have been fortunate to have my art featured in solo shows such as "Rays of Hope'' at Nomadworks NYC, "Calm in Wilderness" and "Nature's Symphony" in New Jersey . I have also participated in prestigious events like ArtExpo NYC and the Affordable Art Fair NYC. I am glad to have been featured by "Creative Artist" magazine, "Canvas Rebel" and a couple more. I am an active member of Salmagundi Club,NYC My artworks have found homes with collectors in the USA, India, UK, Dubai, and Canada.
With a deep connection to nature, I aim to capture its beauty and share the message of happiness through my art. I predominantly work with watercolors but I have painted in other mediums, including oils, inks, and acrylics. I often draw inspiration from my own photographs and collaborate with photographers to transform their images into paintings. I find solace and inspiration in the natural world. Nature's healing and nurturing powers have the ability to transform lives.
Through my art, I strive to create an intersection between nature and art, awakening others to the beauty and blessings that surround us. I firmly believe that art has the potential to expand our vision, enrich our hearts, and remind us of the abundance and healing powers of nature. I ventured into the world of professional art, showcasing my work in a variety of exhibitions and shows.
