"As an illustrator, having an inquiring mind and a vivid imagination is what keeps me moving. My inspiration comes from here, there and everywhere. For example, my recent pieces are inspired by sarees from Raw Mango. Or a few tint-less old photographs of women from the 1800s, posing in traditional wear and laden with jewellery. Bringing old photographs to life is a gratifying experience. I usually pick a subject and work around it for a while. Once I’m done with a piece, new ideas stem from it. These ideas give way to newer art pieces that stand out on their own, but also connect to form a/my body of work."
