Born in New Delhi, India, I initially embarked on a successful career with esteemed Indian and multinational corporations, spanning various cities in India and Singapore. However, in 2009, driven by an unwavering passion for art, I made the audacious decision to leave behind my 18-year corporate tenure and devote myself entirely to pursuing my artistic calling.
Over the ensuing years, I delved deep into the realm of art, immersing myself fully and committing to a comprehensive education in fine arts. In 2014, I earned a BA (Honors) in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths, University of London, UK, in collaboration with The LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. Seeking to enrich my artistic knowledge further, I sought tutelage at The Art Students League of New York, NYC, under the guidance of the accomplished artist Bruce Dorfman. At the League, I was honored to receive the esteemed Kuniyoshi Grant and a scholarship in recognition of my paintings and mixed media work.
Since 2011, my artwork has been showcased in exhibitions and international art fairs across the United States and Singapore. Noteworthy among these are Art on Paper 2019 in New York City, the Texas Contemporary Art Fair 2018 in Houston, the LA ART SHOW 2018 at the LA Convention Centre, and the Singapore Edition of the Affordable Art Fair (AAF) in 2015.
In 2015, my husband and I embarked on a new chapter in our lives, relocating to the vibrant city of New York. It is here, amidst the pulsating energy and creative spirit of NYC, that I currently reside and continue to create my art.
As a visual artist, I embark on a creative journey that traverses interdisciplinary genres, encompassing painting, mixed media, photography, and sculptural installations.
Within my artistic practice, I find profound joy in celebrating the seemingly ordinary and transient beauty that resides within the fabric of our everyday lives. Through my unique perspective, I strive to cast a fresh light upon the world, unveiling its hidden wonders and revealing the poetry that dwells in the mundane. Across diverse mediums, my work becomes a conduit that navigates the realms of space, movement, and the intangible essence of lived experiences and cherished memories. It is within these narratives that intrigue, chance, and spontaneity emerge as vital elements, mirroring the ever-shifting nature of our existence.
Having lived and worked amidst various urban landscapes and cultures spanning the East and the West, I draw immense inspiration from these eclectic experiences, which have significantly shaped and influenced my artistic journey. This rich tapestry of encounters has nurtured an insatiable curiosity within me, fueling a deep engagement with my immediate surroundings and rendering me acutely attuned to both the familiar and the unfamiliar. Consequently, my artistic expression becomes a reflection of my cultural roots, where paints, digital images, rice paper, wax, and ordinary objects intertwine in unconventional ways, creating a conscious and subconscious expression of my artistic vision.
