Artist’s Statement

I create art that reflects my experiences without being bound to particular media; my art reflects my passion to create in the moment. I am a photographer, a graphic designer, a henna artist, a painter, and a textile artist, to name a few.


Photography for me is two things. It is a reflection of my love of nature and trying to capture the divine feeling of particular places. It is also a way of telling a story, a story of my travels or story of the people I encounter. Sometimes it is most enjoyable to provoke a story, the story of “what is that picture” or “how did you get this image?”


In my artwork I aim to create pieces that are a mesh of my Indian heritage and my current life—a mesh of folk art and graphic design, traditional styles with modern materials, impermanent with permanent. While I often teach and demonstrate the traditional techniques of henna, rangoli, and batik, I enjoy applying the designs and techniques in inventive ways.
