30 x 40 in.

I see painting as a whimsical yet intimate gesture of expression – It reveals parts of the human mind that are sometimes unknown to oneself.

My work involves an exploration of identity, places and human encounters in everyday life, which I present in my paintings as fragments and abstract representations. I believe in the notion of ever-changing identity – Our identity is always developing, learning and growing, and through this process, we strive to be the best version of ourselves. To be mindful of the journey and process of self improvement is what I constantly try to reflect in my art.

My practice is based on consciously recreating a world integrated from memories and experience. Consciousness is my medium, as I bring about human experience and perception – Perception of time and space.
