meet m


this is m, my first custom vinyl toy. i had so much fun painting this lil’ animal. special thanks to my dear friend and everyday love team member, donna, for giving me the blank vinyl 3 years ago! it took awhile to get around to painting, but now i’m addicted. i hope to make more this year.

have a happy friday! ^_^


i am somewhat like a cat – curious and attracted to shiny, new things. as an artist i feel the same attraction to new things but often i don’t find the time to explore those desires. as i look forward in my career and life i want to be able to evolve with my work, to go where the art takes me. as much as i direct it, it also directs me. over the past year i’ve been very attracted to watercolor. the indian student in me kept saying “i need to take a class” and the nidhi in me said, “just try it!” so i did – armed with what i know about art already, some good paint and some not-so-good brushes ^_^

these are my results, and the trio of framed pieces will be available at trickster in berkeley. (grand opening this friday & saturday)






Sometimes birds crave good music! As I painted this triptych I imagined her strumming alone, with her eyes closed and the birds gathering around her. Do you think she will open her eyes and discover them? Or will they disappear?

I painted this on re-purposed wood over the past month for a show, it was a lot of fun.

Here are some alternate and detail shots 🙂
