“I am passionate about all types of art – Fine Arts, Literary Arts & Performing Arts. A hardcore believer in daydreaming and yet a creative workaholic. Being a city spirit with wanderlust, I love travelling and find inspiration from the people I meet on these journeys. I collect stories from people, places and experiences and communicate these stories through my work.

I am a self-confessed ‘curious soul’ with a love for finding out about our natural surroundings and quotation enthusiast.

I work across handwork, digital rendering with time based media and interaction design between this analogue and digital world. I enjoy the freedom that comes with all these mediums, and how with the help of technology, they can all be merged to create wonder and amazement.”
