She did work as Head of Design and production with a fashion label “Udd” but gave it up to practice the art of creating articulate visuals across media ranging from travel sketches to digital art to micro AVs and so on. She has had Solo exhibitions at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai and Sudarshan Art Gallery, Pune 2018. She is also an educator and has worked as visiting faculty at Sir J.J School of Art and as an Assistant Professor with Symbiosis Institute of Design for 2 years. Her ways of teaching are directly informed by her art practice as she implores her students as well to find meaning in different compositions around them. Her areas of expertise include Art and Design History, Colour Theory and Form Derivation and Development. Currently she is working as Associate Faculty for Design Foundation Studies at NID, Ahmedabad.
