Enlightened – SagarSeptember 9, 2016
I’ve always had a love for doodling, be it on a piece of paper, a desk or just about anything. I would pick up any random idea and start sketching around it, creating the central theme and elaborating it. It was basically anything or perhaps everything that would fit into my canvas. I began doodling with ball pens and later switched to microns. I was still clueless though and needed a direction. Soon, I got in touch with some of the finest pen and ink sketch artists of the world like Kerby Rosanes, Tim Van den Eynde and Bennett Klein who guided me and enlightened me of thr various techniques of sketching. I have, since then, experimented with quite a lot of styles and techniques like fine art doodle, stipling, geometric doodle, galaxy art and pen and ink hyper-realism sketching.
I try to put in an array of elements into my sketches, playing around with the central idea in my mind and lighting it up with intricate details. My designs include the Mandala, tribal, hyper realism etc. Over time, I started feeling that I should take my work to the world outside. With a bit of encouragement from my friends and family, I put up my work online. I started getting orders immediately after putting up my first artwork. Since then, I have never looked back and created a variety of designs. I have also ventured into hyper realistic digital painting. I never took art seriously as a child, especially during the time when I failed my intermediate art exam in my teens. I was always inclined towards making any design that was superficial and complex. Right now, I can say that because of the constant support from my family, friends, co-workers and social media followers, I am on the road to success. I started two years back without an art background or training of any sort and now I am the brand ambassador of an online magazine called 'Inspiro India'. I have also been chosen as one of the top 100 female illustrators in India. I would just say that Art is all about being free; it’s an extension of yourself. It’s all about your determination, all the hard work you put in, all the late nights you pull sketching and all the challenges you face while living your life as an artist. All of it comes back to you.That’s what I would love to call it: success!
