I have been surrounded with nature throughout my life. It inspired me to look at the world from an organic and tangible perspective. I started drawing still life when I was 12, which eventually led me to pursue art and design as a profession and also as a passion. During my college years, I started experimenting with creating the idea of a 'body' that goes beyond gender and physical experience yet creates an emotional value that all human beings could resonate with. The bodies represent emotions, my own emotions and one I feel that most go through and the plants represent my mom's treatment for her plants as her babies. She talks to them and she knows when they are blooming which inspired me to create such narratives.
I am a contemporary graphic artist from Mumbai, India, and through my art, I try to bring the outside world inside, with the thought of making time for emptiness where I can allow myself to heal by creating a garden of my own. I try to capture the in-between spaces of our lives that we always see but do not generally notice and which end up getting stored in our subconscious mind.
My love for drawing and sketching has been there since childhood but it has been elevated when the covid pandemic hit us in 2020, and I started drawing as a meditative practice. It helped my soul heal and kept me positive and that's what I wanted to share with the entire world, of how important it is to stay positive and believe in the power of imagination
