After moving to India, I have been inspired by my radically different surroundings. I wake up every day to the sound of noisy crows and pigeons. I have never been this close to elephants, birds and monkeys! All of this, without ever having been to the zoo! The lives of these animals and ours are affected by the changing surroundings. These paintings come from the amalgamation of my thoughts and experiences from my life in the US and India and the little of the world that I have seen, so far.
