As an artist, I am a storyteller.
I am drawn to shapes and structure but also the freedom of fluidity. One represents security and organisation and the other unrestricted freedom and flow. I want both, and as a mixed media and collage artist, I have finally found a style that marries them well.
While my educational background comprises English Literature, Psychology and Mass Media, my love affair with art started serendipitously only a little over three years ago, and having explored many different mediums and techniques, I have now found a style that truly resonates with me.
Being a self taught artist and having spent hours and days and years now, trying to teach myself about something I enjoy so much, has taught me that, art is as much about restraint and confidence, as it is about flourish and expression. I yearn to achieve a balance between the two.

My inspiration: My work is greatly influenced by beautiful writing (sometimes even just a single word), and the words or thoughts that inspired the painting, accompany the painting often.
My favourite techniques: Monoprinting and collage.
My process: I enjoy creating my own collage papers and then combining them with mixed media. Many a times I create the papers and simply tear them up or cut them, and then within those pieces, sometimes ideas and inspiration appear. I then put back those pieces to create the story.
WHO I AM
I am a mixed media and collage artist based in Mumbai, India.
