My name is Maithilee and I sign my paintings with a shorter name Mai.
I am drawn to do figurative paintings the most, and sometimes I am inspired to do landscapes and still life as well.I work with oil paints and I work mostly on metal panels for their durability and quality. I do sell my paintings and also accept commissions.
I am a self-taught artist. My maternal grandfather Mr. Rajaram Patkar was a professional artist, an art critic and teacher in Mumbai India. He was actively working in 1950s and 1960s. He wasn't painting by the time I was born so he didn't formally teach me his art. However I think I just caught on to his artistic passion. Being surrounded by art and artists while I was young has trained my eye as well. I have found myself indulging in artistic pursuits throughout my career as a Software professional.
I am a life coach ( see MirrorMyMind) and I write on art and philosophy ( see MSamant.com)
