She has always been fascinated by animation and its exploits. She has keen interest in reading comic books and watching cartoon as a child, which inspired her to take fervent interests towards art. She started out with weaving stories into her drawings and gradually learned the wonderful art of making everything come alive through her imaginations and drawings. Drawings have become a part of her life.

She has a passion for drawing and sketching human characters. She draws inspiration mostly from observing human behaviour in crowded places. The uniqueness of each human individual captivates her. Her works on live human portrait were exhibited at the 12th Grand Annual Art Exhibition which took place at Lalit Kala Akademi Art Gallery from 24th – 29th May, 2014.
