ART AND ARTISANS

She received her Postgraduate degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Arts, London, 2019 and her Undergraduate degree in the same from Surat School of Fine Arts,2017.
She critiques human behaviour drawing the surrounding to generate a narrative which shows the vehemence and an ambivalent state, that she had witnessed and felt, that is somehow universal. She creates imageries that tend to objectify human bodies and its fragments that are subjecting to the violence. The purpose of her work is the narration of emotions through the exploration of the possibilities of the medium. Her practice has evolved with the process of making with a range of media like sketchbooks, textiles, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, photography and installation.
She has curated and participated in various group shows in London and India. She interned at London Art Fair 2018. She also received BA Hons Bharatnatyam in 2010.
