After a 20 year hiatus from creative work, I returned to a practice of creative writing and photography shortly before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020. I have established a creative practice that is integral to the happiness and sustainability of my daily life. My work explores themes of relationship, spirituality, Indian-American culture and collective karmic intersections of feminism.
Prior to the pause in my creative career, I briefly studied photography at Parsons School of Design and then earned my B.A. from the University of Michigan with a major in Women’s Studies and Psychology. In the time since then, I have run and founded companies in e-commerce and digital marketing. I became a mother and have also worked for many non-profits both as an employee and volunteer, helping to further women’s health and rights; helping teens to develop their leadership and art; as well as a high level of involvement in a few different organizations focused on education.
Two of my photos "Withholding" and "Trying" were recently selected by American Photography as AP 37 Chosen Online Winners to be included in The Archive, their online juried collection.
