When I moved into my new home I was looking for very special painting to mark my new life with my husband.  Amrita really listened to what I was looking for, and didn't put any pressure on me to make a decision quickly.  She ended up finding me 2 beautiful paintings that have transformed my space.  She has a special knack for making people feel comfortable and I loved the experience of buying from her gallery.

When I was ready to commission a painting for my home, I turned to Amrita to help me find an artist to work with.  She managed the whole process so everything went smoothly and I felt like I was a part of the collaboration with the artist.  My whole family is thrilled to have this very special painting in our home and I highly recommend tinku gallery to anyone looking to start or grow their art collection.
