Calligraphers Ink

After dabbling in as many as 5 careers in her twenties, Payal finally found her true calling in creating Art. She eventually settled for her childhood passion Calligraphy, something she has been doing since last 12 years. Now she proudly spends her free time conducting workshops and teaching classes in the lost art of penmanship.

In her own words:

I live in beachy, serene madh island where inspiration is often simply a glance out of the window.

As an artist, I am still discovering myself, unraveling layers & exploring unchartered ground every day.

Mainly, I work with acrylic on canvass, with ink on paper & 3D media as and when something catches my fancy & looks like potential masterpiece raw material, even if it is just scrap. I have never had any formal training in art so my art quite literally emanates from me as a continuous stream of consciousness from my mind into my fingertips & onto a canvass.

My art is the one place where I am completely uninhibited, no holds barred. And in a world where social niceties can sometimes break the backbone of freewill, when I am alone with my canvass, experimenting with different colours, textures, styles & media, its like I am finally breathing free.
