I create freehand ink drawings and paintings inspired by patterns found in other cultures, predominantly from Asia and the Middle East. I've won international art awards, been featured in Vogue Magazine, exhibited at the V&A, and produced a mindfulness colouring book in the UK and Brazil.

I am a self-taught artist based in Manchester. I'm particularly inspired by Asia and the Middle East which coincides with my degree in South Asian Studies and Hindi at SOAS, University of London. During my travels I collect ideas from architecture, landscapes, nature, people, and textiles, to create unique and organic pieces.
My freehand work, which showcases hand-drawn skills without the use of measurements and technology, ranges from decorative to thought-provoking.
