Here are a few art quotes that inspire me to spread the essence of art through geetarts platform.
I find happiness in connecting to the community by spreading the essence and knowledge of art through art instruction, conducting workshops, and engaging in art-related events.
Geetarts is a platform that gives children an opportunity to learn art and unleash their artistic skills with a focus on learning techniques, bringing out creativity through imagination.

My journey to art has started with my first oil painting in 1995
This painting not only unleashed my artistic talent but also gave me a path to build my childhood interest into passion. Since then I kept this passion alive by creating own art work using different media and teaching kids at my own art school. I find greatest joy in painting and get utmost satisfaction by sharing the essence, happiness of painting and spark the imagination in kids. I get inspired by an artwork which touches my heart with a great feeling of joy every time I see.
My Style and Interests
I believe anything associated with creativity and talent can become a beautiful art-form. I like to paint on a subject that is close to the nature or depicts beauty of an object, person, scenery or a theme. I usually like to bring an interesting element to the painting by using mixed media including cloth, gems or other material that enhances the painting. I focus on the subject, color and design interact with the paintings environment and surrounding ambiance.
I enjoy molding the clay on canvas that brings 3D effect and using oils on canvas is my favorite medium to work with.
Early stages of my artistic career I started painting with minimal or no instructional guidance. Later, I learnt different techniques from various skilled local artists in India and U.S.A.
