I am very much fascinated with nature and cultural heritage; I try to reflect these elements in my art. One of my favourite artworks would be ‘The Heritage’ which I created in 1997. It is an assortment of nature and our unique architecture. Also I have showcased our geographical regions: hills, mountains, and Terai with a picture of Lord Ganesha which represents Kathmandu as city of religious heritage. Every time I see this painting I feel patriotic and proud.
