She holds BVA & MVA from College of Fine Arts, Bengaluru; where she majored in Sculpture, and Art History. Furthermore, she went on to do a Diploma in Counselling Skills to explore nature of human beings in the cultural and emotional aspects of life. She volunteers at different organizations across the city from time to time.
She is a part of a Bengaluru based Art collective, Geechugalu that explores her roots through art.Her journey in Ceramics began with Claystation Sadhashivnagar, where she learnt pottery and has worked on the production side in the development of glazes.
She has been a freelance art instructor for more than a decade. Her process of creating works through guiding the student through an understanding of material and body. This helps build a relationship through which one can communicate a language of art, that is both personal and universal.
