Shree's  -  Artist Statement

about meI wish to introduce myself as a freelance artist, creatively evolving, ShreeArt, basically from INDIA, now in TORONTO CANADA, engaged in Designing, Painting, Inventing & Exploring par unique hand Acrylic Paintings on Real Dried Tree Leaf, Thumb Nail-Paintings, Hand Painted Greeting Cards, Traditional Indian Paper Handicrafts, Hand Painted Oils, Acrylics & Charcoal paintings.

Shree, myself an artist, have got more than 15 years of self learning experience in the field of designing unusual yet visually creative art concepts. Since childhood my passion got a stimulus and my heart pumped to paint anything which was very distinct and unique. Gradually I grew up witnessing the true beauty of the Nature around me and was drown in love with nature’s mesmerizing & unimaginable images which left timeless impressions on my mind.

My hobby took a form of a genuine business as more and more people started loving & appreciating my discovery idea of PAINTING on a REAL DRIED (PEPAL) TREE LEAF & etching designs on a special paper with my own Thumb's Nail, which by now are popularly known as NAIL-PAINTINGS, rubbed with wax based powder color shades.

To the surprise of everyone, I am a born, gifted artist and had not taken any kind of formal training from any institutes. Its just inheritance, that flows in our art.

Presently, I am trying to engage myself in exhibiting & sale of my unusual LANDSCAPES & PORTRAITS paintings with Oils & Acrylic to different artistic communities around, along with REAL DRIED TREE LEAF PAINTINGS & NAIL PAINTINGS (An unusual way of presenting India’s rare Art) to our various esteemed art lovers in Canada as well as rest of the world.

One has to see it, feel it & possess it to believe it. No wonder they are rare.!!


The most impressive of all, my unique Hand Paintings on a Real Dried Tree Leaf with acrylic colors for all occasions are usually hard to believe, but the real dried tree LEAF paintings gives a look which one just keeps on gazing from the very first sight. The lovely Landscapes & Seascapes, with varied shades, stroked very finely & neatly on the small surface of a natural real (Pepal) Tree Leaf, mounted on handmade paper backdrops giving earthy tones to our hand painted LEAF art.

It takes lots of time, sometimes days to paint these intimate details on small surface like a dried LEAF with a balanced hand & equally patient mind. No sketch work is done, directly paints are applied to the leaf giving the finest strokes & artistic visual effects.

Lastly, this hand-painted Leafs are mounted 3Dimentially in an elegant frame, to keep the body, colors & shades intact, for the years to come.

Indeed these LEAF PAINTINGS are very unique, unusual yet eco-friendly in its own way, as they are very much natural, earthy & ethnic which surely acts as a perfect Wall Hanging, Gift, Art Display or simply an Art Décor which can be possessed, treasured & felt for a life time.


India’s most rarest Art of “ NAIL PAINTINGS " A painting done with a little Thumb’s Nail of my Hand & shaded in a very unique style of colors which leaves an embossed impression not only on paper but even on the minds of the viewer. Its beauty lies in its creative etching & unusual textured shading, giving a touch of artistic excellence all over the artwork.

Nail paintings has many forms, while sometimes Abstract shapes & Human faces with varied emotions are engraved and very often one can find very artistic figures of Lord Ganesh, Divine Aum, Animals & Flowers Nail painted very finely on a special art paper.

It takes tremendous patience & immense concentration, to emboss & create such imaginary sketches, sometimes days to etch certain distinct details on small as well as huge sized special paper with an accurate pressured hand & equally thoughtful mind. No sketch work is done on the paper, directly the thumbnail moves & the outline gets embossed as per my thoughts to portray some fantastic & unmatched visual designs. Shading & coloring process is wonderfully interesting as the artwork has to be rubbed on sprinkled wax based powder colors; generating an unbelievable shady textures & tones creating a magical illusions to my so called NAIL PAINTINGS.
