Artist Statement

My passion in Arts & Crafts began from my childhood with my artistic family as my inspiration. All through my life I have been experimenting with various art forms.

While at school my obsession was with Watercolors, when I moved to college where I did my engineering, I delved deep into Drawing & Sketching. After graduating, I worked as a web designer and moved into creative Media Art. When I took a break from my job, I wanted to try something new and out came the "Out of Box Creations" that contains a sample of all the usable life size structures I had created out of cardboard.

When I first tried out paper quilling, I was fascinated with the idea of turning colored paper strips into art. I was instantly in love with this art and since then I have been continuously mastering this amazing technique. My quilled creations range from simple gift tags to cards, framed artworks, jewellery and three-dimensional models. Please visit my online Gallery to view my artworks.
