"Although I have always found myself more joyful and happy pursuing my artistic interests, it was not an easy decision for me to switch the career from an IT domain to Arts domain.
It was back in the year 2014-15. I was still working with an IT company. Challenging projects, deadlines, work pressure was all part of the game. At times I used to get tensed or stressed due to office situations. But my art & spiritual interests always helped me to stay focused and calm.
One morning, I was heading office with an anxious stressed mind. To calm myself down I started a self-talk. I asked my mind a simple question “what kind of office work will make me happy?”. Obviously the answer was whatever I love doing most. A sudden smile came on my face with a thought of an imaginary art office where I could visualize a huge group of art associates involved in various art projects and I was one of them. This thought made me take a first step in creating a platform for art associates which they can use to collaborate with and create work opportunities for each other.
When I formally started working on this concept, I could sense a gap in the way both society & artists perceive the art. I felt the strong urge to bridge this gap by doing something that would bring art associates together under one roof for a cause. Launch of "Art My Breath" is my first step in this direction. I will be happy when "Art My Breath" succeed in uniting & assisting art associates in their individual art career pursuits. Thank you."

"Welcome to Art My Breath.
Having talked about the journey of my dream project “Art My Breath”, let me take an opportunity to introduce myself in few lines.
I am an art loving person, music enthusiast and a spiritual seeker. I am a student of Hindustani Classical Music and I have completed my masters in this art form as a vocalist. Singing was my hobby initially which became my passion in later years.
Apart from singing, I also love composing songs and writing poetry. I have released couple of my compositions on Art MY Breath’s YouTube channel. I have also published a Marathi poetry book named "Mrugajalacha Doha". Currently I am working on the second poetry book and planning to publish it soon.
I am an engineering graduate and was associated with IT sector for around 15+ years before switching my career to Arts. During my association with IT sector my passion for music stayed alive.
Pune, being a cultural city, it was obvious for me to meet artists and art lovers in and around the town. At various occasions such as cultural events, concerts, exhibitions, workshops I always love to meet them, talk about art in general, share knowledge and try learning from their experiences.
I would like to thank my Parents, Gurus & Art associates for their continued guidance and support which has always encouraged me to progress on the path of creativity; the path of pursuing, experiencing and enjoying Art."
