I love doodling or zentangling (as these designs are called) and can tirelessly scribble for hours.

The best part of this design is that each of what I create is unique, I can never replicate or copy the design. I just feel nice thinking about how unique each of these design is 🙂

As you can see, I love taking pictures too 🙂

None of the pictures are photoshopped (maybe made a bit brighter), most of them taken on my Android phone. Is that something to be proud of.. I dont know…just feeling ‘osome’ of how this turned out.

You think so too???

Make over

I wanted to do running horses on this canvas. But what turned out was a sad big blotch of color with the so called horse sketch looking more like the picture of an alien.

I couldn’t throw it away, so decided to revamp it. I painted the whole canvas black and did my signature design on it.

Picture frame1

I wish I had the chance to repaint a few things of my life. Few words, incidents that I could do again with different strokes and colors. Maybe it would have changed the whole painting…

Do you ever feel you want a revamp?

Be (lieve)

From the sketch book…

To be what you dream…is probably the first effort taken to take that dream of yours to the next step.

I always thought that artists are people who have their huge paintings hung in galleries…the reality is far from it. Each of us are artists in our own way.

Our way of life is an art by itself.

Be 3

Someone told me that to be an artist, you feel like one first. What a deep truth said so casually!

So to be(lieve) or not to be(lieve)… its all in you.

Dream… It all starts with this

From the sketchbook

When I hesitated to restart doing art, for reasons of starting from scratch so late in life, someone special told me exactly this

Dream 2

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

– C. S Lewis

Dream is the beginning of everything, so dont stop 🙂

Sometimes all it takes is a push to start putting your dream on the road to reality.

The design featured here (called zentangles) is hand drawn on recycled book covers exclusively available upon request.

It all starts with a dream…

Sunset design

Here is a design I did for the love of the magical sunsets.

One of the things that excite me from the million others is sketchbooks. There are so many different kinds of art paper out there!!!

This one is done on canvas sketchpaper, for those of you who are familiar with it and think whats new!, I am a newbie to art so these are wonderful ‘discoveries’ for me.

This particular zentangle has been on my mind for sometime now, so I drew a rough sketch of it first.

I like how this turned out. I put it on Society6 and saw it come alive on

Throw pillows:)

20140615_185233I had to change the color… as suggested by my dear friend and mentor and brightened it up. It looks so much better now. Doesnt it?

I feel it looks like tribal art design. What do you think? If you want to get hold of this head to http://society6.com/product/bright-ray-of-hope_pillow

I can’t wait to share pictures of other products with this design 🙂

So until the next post..

10 min princess

I do carry a sketch book with me almost always but very rarely get to draw in it.

This Indian lady was doodled during a flight trip and remains one of my favourite. Why? Because its a 10 min work and…

And thats how it turned out.
