My artwork ‘Bloom’ depicts a cluster of roses developing through their life cycle. The new bud is sweetly coloured and ready to unfold. The rose is bright in full bloom, while the wilting flowers gain shadow. The spent rose hip bears the stamens that ensured its reproduction. I wanted to show nature’s story of birth, life and death juxtaposed in a beautiful way.


‘Flourish’ portrays a singular rose thriving in its own glory. The flower is bright, beautiful and healthy. This rose represents me. While studying through SIDE Distance Education, I have become very self-reliant, and have learnt that I can achieve great things on my own. This painting reflects me in my present stage in life.
