My forte is ink, with both pen and brush. I developed an affinity towards this medium because of its unpredictable and volatile nature.


Although my work does not directly engage with any one particular social or political issue, it takes on a more individual almost autobiographical role in terms of a mental response or reaction towards the issues that we as humanity are trying to grapple with. My work engages with the constant changes that we collectively have to adjust and adhere to, my paintings move from chaos and hysteria, to depiction of hope and serenity, emotions every individual would feel in different circumstances and situations, to finally realization and comprehension of life’s processes, of understanding that everything is , has been and will be in a constant state of Flux    (change). And even in destruction and chaos something new and stable is created. My work tries to explore the changing mental landscape of the human mind.
