What a hyper realistic painter she is !! Just wow, superb..These were the two words that suddenly struck my mind when i saw her paintings. Though it is very difficult for anyone to believe that her works are oil paintings as they look like real photographs at first instance. But friends, i salute her talent, so inspiring and mesmerizing.
