I am an architect by profession and have been based in Bahrain since the last 20 years.Art has always been part of my existence.I was inspired to draw and paint at a very early age.Since I was fond of doodling and painting at a very early age my teachers encouraged me and introduced me to oils early in school. My tryst with water colours started after I joined architecture college.Apart from these 2 mediums I use soft pastels, oil pastels , markers and sketch pens. My profession and my passion are in many ways linked as is evident in the choice of subjects( Urban landscapes) and their treatment which generally has a lot of detailing particularly with markers and sketch pens which I use a lot at work also.
