I am an Edinburgh based Visual Artist and Illustrator. My interests lie in depicting family, tradition, and the many layers of life. To achieve this I work with various mediums and techniques ranging from printmaking to acrylics, water colours and paper installations, often with elements of story telling. Size, medium and material depend on the where the project takes me.

I was born in India where I lived 27 years of my life. My many travels and experiences in India still influence and inform my work among other things. I moved to Edinburgh in 2007, pursuing a Masters in Illustration. This was a natural progression from my previous degree in Graphic Design – which explains why I am strongly drawn to good design and typography. Now, I consider Edinburgh my home.

I am interested in people, with all their quirks, flaws, generosity and goodness. I am intrigued by the objects we collect, treasure, horde and then eventually leave behind. Telling a story long after we are gone. In my work I try to capture the relationships people share with others and attempt to reflect the weakness, strengths and emotions we see in ourselves. At the same time my work is also a response to my surroundings and the general hustle bustle of life I see around me.
