The Artist, that's me!
I began painting when I was 9-years-old and have not stopped ever since. My formal training is in Architecture and UX Research/Design; but I’ve worn many different hats simultaneosuly, including that of a Visiting Assitant Professor and an Artist. My role as an architect has made me adept at working with technical, time-bound and meticulous frameworks; design gives me the foundation for solving problems creatively, teaching has helped open up my mind towards complex problems; and pursuing art has given me the channel to be spontaneous and unfiltered. Having these multiple identities has been liberating for me and it's no wonder that my artistic style has a simultaneous presence of geometry and abstraction.
I continue to hone my passion for mixed media art along with my full time role as an Innovation Catalyst for Venture Building. Over the years my style has come to bear semblance with Cubism with the ‘contemplative’ ethos of post-impressionism.
I draw inspiration from a variety of things, including my professional experiences in UX Research and Entrepreneurship, and my multi-cultural journey. I have lived in different parts of India, the tropical island of Mauritius and currently split my time between Canada and the United States. This nomadic lifestyle provides me a diverse perspective, one rooted in understanding people, their motivations and their environments. I draw on my changing surroundings and multidisciplinary identity to create emotive abstractions about our environment and experiences.
