Born in Dankaur (U.P.) India, 1952. Lives in Summit, NJ, works in Summit and Newark, NJ

I am an experimental and experiential artist. I have not made a conscious effort to develop a style; I have let it happen to me. I began painting, drawing and playing music at a young age in India.  I was an itinerant apprentice if you will, since I was 12, with established artists, sculptors, commercial painters, textile and fabric designers, and musicians. I learned techniques of material preparation, oil and linen painting, sculpture and music from these “gurus”. I also performed and recorded with iconic jazz musicians in avant-garde ensembles for several years.
