My artworks, mostly figurative, have surrealist qualities. My paintings, cognisant of the world around me, comment on key human emotions. I experiments with different media and use familiar imagery such as figures and everyday objects to produce the desired effect. (One is almost obligated to introspect when confronted with her paintings, which appear to be a fragment of a memory or perhaps even fantasy.)as puts by Jyotsana Sharma.I was born in Lucknow, have a PhD in Medieval Modern Indian History from the University of Lucknow. Having trained under the guidance of the renowned Indian artist Rameshwar Broota, I have participated in several art shows and my artworks are a part of many private collections worldwide.

2016 ‘Wooden Horse -A Self Portrait ’ Shridharani Gallery, New Delhi, November
Came about when I was commissioned to paint for a children's charity show. I was reminded of my childhood companion the wooden horse, on which I could travel to various magical imaginary destinations. The wooden horse had all kinds of powers; he could fly, he could swim, there was nothing he couldn't do - he wasn't limited by the restrictions we as adults place upon ourselves, however, after completing the colourful series with wooden horse as my protagonist, it got alive on my canvas to share sensitive, humanistic, and honest stories of my dreams, personal experience, and conversations. The WOODEN HORSE, in some of my paintings, shown in humdrum settings, at times of different conditions surrounding. It’s the monotony of the protagonist’s existence against the extraordinary circumstances. it finds itself in, that provides; somewhat mysterious attitude. Visually, my painting has to have a quality to highlight the feelings the character is experiencing.
2014 ’Wings,Shadows &1000 Birds ’ Shridharani Gallery, New Delhi, January
I've always been drawn to WINGS since I was a child. The wings are symbol of aspiring to the greatest heights of accomplishment. In my paintings wings stand for clarity of mind, that how clean mental focus combined with stable footing can transform our lives in magical ways.BIRDS represent joy, harmony, ecstasy, balance, and love. It denotes a sunny outlook in life, spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. It is symbolic of a transition or spiritual awakening also refer to the craving of an individual for the inner child, which would obviously mean innocenceI am trying to explain, how our SHADOW side holds the key to our inner self through shadow. Each of us has a shadow that whispers stories of our own self-defeating fears to us, hence understanding our own shadow side can lead us to lives of tremendous realisation and peace.
