I am a charcoal artist and Illustrator based in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
My style is elegant and trendy, and mostly romanticizes contrasts- Black & white and color, simple and complex, cute and sophisticated.
I grew up in India, lived in the UK and Hong Kong before moving to the US in 2012. Though I trained as a Computer Engineer and earned my Masters in Business Administration, I always wanted to make art for a living. In 2013, I became a full-time artist. I am now freelancing as a Product development designer for a leading baby apparel manufacturing company. I also license my personal work for some of the amazing clients in the US.
I love working with Charcoal. I am amazed at how this medium can be both loose and rigid at the same time, the possibilities are endless. I enjoy working digitally too and sometimes with different media like color pencils, pen and ink, watercolor and gouache. I am extremely passionate about surface pattern designing and new product conceptualization.
My husband and I love traveling with our two beautiful boys. I take inspiration from my travels and the things I see around me and like to capture it in my work. I live, dream and breathe art everyday.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my art!!!
