Originally from India, brought up in The Netherlands and Singapore, and now living in Oban, her multi-cultural upbringing and diverse experiences play an influential role in her work.

In her freelance creative practice she has had the chance to collaborate and consult with likeminded brands in design and sustainability such as JODI and Crùbag, as well as developing a voice as a writer within the field, having contributed to The Slow Grind Journal amongst publishing articles online.
