The process of making art helps me explore ways in which we are all connected to each other, across time and space. Through my exploration of folk art practices from different cultures, I utilize traditional techniques in creating contemporary paintings, installations and crafts. My artwork is influenced by cultural symbols and motifs commonly found inĀ  a range of folk art patterns from ancient Indian, Southeast Asia, and South America. My South Asian background heavily inspires and guides both my professional artwork and personal endeavors in fostering an appreciation for inclusivity and cultural diversity. Over the past four years, my focus has evolved towards a more socially engaged artistic practice. I find myself naturally inclined towards creative collaboration, inviting individuals to interact socially with my art, through donated materials or interactive components. This evolution consistently drives me to create engaging, interactive art experiences that showcase diverse cultural heritages.
