And then it rained..

Public Library roundabout

Wet blow dry

Wet hardbody

When the heavens opened up there wern't any stop gaps. It just came down in buckets. And we just wern't equipped to deal with the downpour mother nature dished us. Homes, stores, parks, almost everythign had a good wash and a fill up.

For the love of mirrors!

I wish i had the time to paint every single day. My day job takes most of my time. Painting is a passion on hold. Waiting to transform a piece of glass. Where colours will brighten and jolt and finally settle into a semblance of stunning visualization. I'm rambling. Thats mainly because i'm sleepy. Maybe tomorrow it'll be different. Good night from me. xx

Sweet KL

From the window of my hotel room in KL everything seemed so pristine. But one thing that struck me as strange was the food. I really don't know whether it was all the restaurants and hotels i managed to go to or whether it was a nationwide habit but every morsel of food i tasted while i was here was sweet! Me who was used to the spiciest of food couldn't fathom this taste that found its way into everything. Even the chillie sauce!

Holy tree in Chennai

A friend and I were hurtling through the busy Cheenai streets in a tuk tuk when we sped past this holy tree. I dont know the significance behind it though.

Rainbow bubbles on a mirror!

I just designed a gorgeous mirror.. Excited because i love what a mirror transforms into after it's been painted..

Tree from a window..

I was walking down busy Pettah and woah there it was ! A tree crawling its way out from a window in this old run down building.. How crazy is that..

A brief jaunt in the paddy fields of Bandaragama..

Just a 45 minute drive from Colombo and you land in this tiny town called Bandaragama, where lush paddy fields abound both sides of stretch of road..

Cup cake haven in my belly!

The most mouth watering gooey chocolate chip cupcake hit my stomach last week and i wanted to at least try and describe the feeling! It simply melted in my mouth and made a spirally descend down my inside creating havoc on its wake. For a while there everything was in complete chaos inside my belly! Ahhh!

I paint because i love.


The Romans believed mirrors trapped your soul. They also thought your body regenerated itself every seven years, hence the bad luck superstition! But mirrors are also ways that can bring in great positive vibes into the room you hang them in. My love of painting mirrors began a long long time ago whilst walking down Oxford street and i came across this stunning mirror that literally made me stop in my tracks. Of course i couldn't dream of owning it as it was way beyond an ordinary person's budget! But it did inspire me to come back home and try my hand at painting one of my own. 

There was no looking back after that! I've dabbled, learnt, amassed almost everything I need to know and fallen in love with a form of art that has also helped me look to the future with brighter and keener eyes.. . 

Pictured here are some of my works of love that i have on sale..
