Chester, NJ, USA
I’m a designer with a background in clinical psychology, publishing and mixed media, keen on drawing, hand lettering, memory-keeping and photography. I love experimenting with analog processes and curious about digital tools.
I’m passionate about wellness through creativity. My goal is to collaborate with like-minded creatives to use illustration and stories to create meaningful and intentional experiences.
I am mainly a self-taught artist. As a child I trained under the eminent Indian painter, Ramananda Bandopadyay for 5 years and later enjoyed a merit scholarship in painting from the Centre of Cultural Resources and Training under the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. My work has been featured over 700 times in craft publications from 2004-2016. You can find a current list here.
