I am a Delhi based artist and writer. Having pursued fine art under the tutelage of artist Shobha Broota, I am a recent entrant to the world of art. I have been involved in research, planning and execution of gallery exhibitions and external projects. In addition, I have been writing for eminent artists G. R. Iranna and Vibha Galhotra. With many years of experience in professional and creative writing, I have been involved in content writing, editing and catalogue writing for artists.

I have a Master’s in Public Policy from Duke University, USA. Prior to transitioning to the world of art, I was working in the fields of international development and policy research with multilateral organizations and think tanks such as The World Bank, Washington D.C. and the International Labor Organization in Geneva.
