The Living Canvas is everywhere, in all medium and in many forms. As a child growing up in Calcutta, India, I learned from one of the old masters of classical Indian art. He taught me to see any surface as a potential canvas, from a dried leaf to an old discarded piece of wood. I painted on surfaces of fabric, asbestos sheets, wood panels, clay and on anything that came my way. I continue to create art in my free time. My art work is a collection of episodes that afford glimpses into moments of clarity and have been essential in my journey.
