She is a passionate believer in the power of creativity. Creativity has been there for her even during her periods of art blocks, it has comforted her through its resilient nature. It is gentle, powerful, and inclusive all at once, but it still persists, helping you unveil something that may be intimate, messy, or even different but it helps you feel something. She enjoys leaving parts of her life incidents in her paintings, and each of her paintings is a strong reflection of this. She finds traveling her big inspiration and each painting has a story to tell. They tell tales of her various endeavors and adventures from her travel journeys in the most artistic manner. 

Her paintings depict wildlife, nature and the vibrant culture of places visited. Her paintings portray hope and positivity through her vibrant colors.

Title - Beauty in Chaos. This painting is inspired by nature. I’ve tried to capture the true essence of a dense forest using abstract impressions. The background enriched with an abstract sense of flora and fauna, enhances the beauty of the lone bird.
