“I love using my cultural background as inspiration for my work. My family is originally from India, however, the past several generations have been born and raised in East Africa. As my life has been a hybrid of cultures and religions, I’ve been very lucky to see the beauty and art behind history as it has unfolded through my many travels. The highlight of my day is the joy I get from designing a custom piece, be it on a client or as a product design. If I’m not working, you’ll find me sitting quietly, headphones in, designing henna on a random piece canvas because that’s genuinely what I consider my ‘happy place’”.
