My practice as a ceramic artist explores the experience of migrants from South Asia. The expression of their journeys and how they move between cultural traditions in new lands are central to the art practice, these being translated through cultural rituals. My practice that also incorporates performance and community participation addresses themes of identity, place, loss, confluence of cultural practices and memory from the feminine perspective.
Following the completion of my Bachelor of Arts Honours (1st class) in Ceramics in 2013 and I was awarded a Grant in 2014 to develop my practice that explores Cultural Hybridity. I am currently undertaking my postgraduate studies in Fine Arts. I have been a presenter at international conferences and recipient of US art residencies, awards in sculpture/fine art exhibitions, Scholarships and the American NCECA Multicultural Fellowship. These opportunities have allowed me to connect with the broader global arts community to convey migrant stories.
