Artist's Statement

I inherited my love of painting from my father, who was a true artist, and I treasure the memories of my childhood in India spent with him and his artist friends.  After graduation, I went to England for higher education, and after finishing my doctoral studies, I taught computing at Imperial College, London.  In that time, I spent innumerable hours at the various art museums around London and Paris and developed a penchant for impressionist paintings.  Later, I moved to the Silicon Valley for a career in software engineering but have pursued my interest in art whenever possible.
