Read about my journey

As an avid lover of Art & Design, I completed my Bachelor's in Fashion and Lifestyle Accessories Design from NIFT, Hyderabad in 2013. After my graduation, I worked as a Jewellery Designer and Merchandiser in the diamond industry, Mumbai for about 5 years.
Due to some unavoidable circumstances, I had to leave the job I was passionate about.

My love for my work helped me hold pen and paper once again after almost 7-8 months.
I discovered my love for Mandalas when I actually drew one in Oct 2018 without knowing that it's an Ancient form of Art.
My first mandala was without the help of any geometry tools but it acted as a great stress-reliever for me. I found the process so relaxing that I started drawing it quite often.

A few days later on Nov 23, 2018, I created a page on Instagram to share my works. Little did I know then that the Art-form would pave a way for so many exciting opportunities a year ahead.
I announced my first workshop in Hyderabad in Sept 2019 for which I got an amazing response. Since then I got several other opportunities to conduct workshops, judge contests in different cities across the country.

Due to the pandemic in 2020, I had to switch to online classes from physical workshops. I launched my first Online Course in June 2022. Since then, it’s only got better by the grace of God.

As a mentor, I’m able to bring a positive change in the lives of people. The experience so far has been enriching, rewarding and fulfilling.
I’m living my passion and purpose today. Whatever I am and all that I hope to be, I owe it all to my parents and all those who have supported me in one way or the other.

I have nothing but gratitude. :)
The journey has just begun...
