I am an Indian immigrant, moved to the States in 2007 for a Masters's in Computer Science. My mom is an Artist and for years I learned to paint and draw by copying her painting, but I grew to become an engineer by profession and currently work as an Engineering Manager at Zendesk. In 2014, I wanted to learn art history and art psychology, so I joined continuing studies at Stanford University. I continued this art journey by enrolling in MFA at the Academy of Arts University. My works are inspired by my surroundings and the idea of finding my own identity as a global citizen. 


My post-colonial portraits combine painting, photography, fabric, and digital prints which explore varying relationships between past and popular culture, by referencing social issues such as racism, immigration, and gender inequality. 

As an artist, I am committed to exploring and challenging the intersections of race, gender, and post-colonialism in my work by exploring the ways in which gender and racial biases shape our world. My art is a means of both personal and political expression, as I strive to bring attention to the experiences and perspectives of marginalized communities. I aim to create pieces that are both visually striking and thought-provoking, inviting viewers to consider the ways in which these biases intersect and impact the lives of individuals. Ultimately, become an activist and use art to voice social issues women and people of color face worldwide.


I have been featured in publications and magazines such as Forbes, Maake magazine, Artmarket magazine and have exhibited in museums and galleries including the De Young Museum, San Francisco International Airport, San Mateo City Hall, San Mateo Library, Museum of Northern California and Brown University.
