About

My practice engages with the social and cultural meanings of spaces constructed through both personal and global experiences. I incorporate found imagery and objects and re-appropriate them to construct new meanings.

Recent exhibitions include: Remaking Picasso's Guernica, Performing Activism: A Public Sewing Event on 16 & 23 June 2013 at the Jubilee Library in Brighton, UK, and a series of outdoor video installations as part of exhibition Speculation and Spectacle on 3 May and 21 June 2012 in New York.

I was awarded a practice-based PhD by the Faculty of Art at the University of Brighton, UK in 2010, where I also undertook an MA in Sequential Design/Illustration in 2000-01. I completed a Degree in Applied Arts at Abhinav Art School in Pune, India in 2000.

I have Lectured in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Brighton since 2009 on the MA Fine Art programme, Cultural and Critical Studies on the BA Graphic Design and Illustration and History of Art and Design. In 2004-05 I worked as a gallery educator at Tate Britain and at the Brunei Gallery in 2008. I worked as a Creative Director in two start up companies Addax Creative Solutions and Zest Art Studios in 2006-08.
