I am a Geophysicist by profession and an avid Zen doodler by hobby. I was drawn to this beautiful form of art by its simplicity and its peaceful impact on the mind. With a busy hustling life running at its full pace, I found my escape in the form of intricate Zen patterns . What started as a hobby has become a passion now and it has become a part of my routine life. I love experimenting with colours to create both contemporary and traditional Zen Inspired Artwork (commonly known as ZIA). I strongly believe in the core values of this form of art which is to enjoy the process and not to worry about the outcome. Just like the body dances to the sound of music, my mind dances to Zen.

I strongly believe in the core values of this form of art  – to enjoy the process and not to worry about the outcome. Just like the body dances to the sound of music, my mind dances to Zen.
