One glance at her 'Lotus Series' leaves one spellbound. It was sheer serendipity that the Lotus as the theme of her painting caught her attention. She was enthralled when she started contemplating on the spiritual symbolism of Lotus.
The protagonist 'Lotus' grew on her and evolved in her dreams which she beautifully translated on to her canvasses.The virtuoso envisioned the Lotuses in her inward eye and illustrated the same in vivid hues. The various hues seem to uphold figurative impact on the minds of the onlookers. The Green Lotus Ponds emerges as floating under the verdant trees and shades. Yellows/Oranges seem to spark off a visual of crimson glow of a setting sun. The blue lotus pond impersonates the adroitness of the artist in giving life to a fantasy world. Every element in the Lotus series has a pivotal symbolism. The dark indigo leaves implicitly highlighting the twilight, the zigzag uneven pattern symbolic of water imparts the onlookers a visual treat. Through the series she has explored innately the vividness of components of the Lotus, be it the leaf, stalk, the stem or the literal protagonist 'The Flower Lotus'. The rhythm, the colour pallet, emotion, the imagination leaves one in a trance yearning for more. She is indeed an avant-garde artist of the first order and her object d' art are indeed a masterpiece.
