Artist Statement

My love for nature and in particular, the prairies, lead me to start painting the local landscapes of Saskatchewan (Central prairie Province of Canada), where I currently reside. Also known as “The land of Living Skies”, Saskatchewan offers a huge opportunity for me as an artist to explore the vast natural spaces. My landscape paintings of the prairies capture both the natural and man-made treasures of the land which are not so obvious to the new and untrained eyes. My paintings reflect my emotional responses to the visual poetry of the ever changing drama in the prairie skies, which have a huge impact on the land below.

My Sikh paintings primarily reflect my ideas of Sikh history from what I learnt from the elders. Often they depict historical scenes, figures or places. My subjects are not restricted to any particular theme. I like to experiment through simplification of color, subject and composition or combination of all.
