Born in Mumbai, India, I immigrated to Pennsylvania with my family at 11 years old. I hold a BA from University of Pennsylvania and MFA from Tyler School of Arts (Temple University). My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Providence, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Chicago, Dubai, Panama, Portugal, and Mexico.
I was invited in 2005 by the American Embassy in Panama to hold workshops in schools and art centers, creating collaborative art installations about everyday objects in personal life. I worked on the public project America’s Chinatown Voices at Columbus Park in New York City, organized by the Asian American Art Center in 2008 and 2009. Three hundred panels illustrating stories of Asian Americans in New York were publicly displayed in Chinatown in New York City. The Philadelphia Museum of Art proudly exhibited two of my paintings from 2002 to 2008. I have done residency with Snug Harbor Cultural Center, and Triangle Workshop.
