I come from a rich and diverse artistic background which combines my experience from both Indian and Western cultural art settings. I am proud to say my personal work portfolio portrays this extensive variety as observed from contemporary and historical context; particularly covering traditions and art cultures. I was born in Mumbai, India, in 1985 where I lived, studied, and worked till 2009. I came to United States to pursue higher education and continue my passion for Fine Arts. I earned MFA degree with Honors from University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas in the field of Metalsmithing and Jewelry Designing in 2016. My past studies in natural sciences, biology and botany, especially the microscopic investigations of living tissues became the source of inspiration for my jewelry. My recent work is predominantly inspired from bioluminescence found in organisms living on land and in the sea. During my time as a student, I received numerous awards and scholarships including Reactive Metals fund for the Advancement of Metal Art, Department of Visual Art, University of Kansas, Curator’s Choice Award, Momentum: Art Doesn’t Stand Still, Tulsa, and Outstanding Senior Award, Department of Arts, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater. I wish to pursue a career in Jewelry design and academia and I currently working as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond for the Visual Art department.
