Collaboration with author-poet Vrinda Nair
People ask me whether
I am an Extrovert or an Introvert
To that I say
I am that Wallflower
Whose presence is felt everywhere
The collage is inspired by this beautiful poem by Vrinda who is an author-poet of three published books & Wallflower is the poem from her first book, It’s a Carnal world.

Collaboration with illustrator Neha Shetty
The idea of this collaboration was to bring together two different forms of art, a digital illustration & an analog collage.
Neha Shetty is a Bangalore based illustrator who digitally illustrated few ideas for the main character, the boss lady! Once the illustration was in place, I started working on the background where I used magazine cutouts with some elements to highlight the character & background such that it compliments the mood of the illustration.

World Collage Day,2019
In 2019, many collage artists created and sent out handmade postcards to people around the globe to celebrate the World collage day which happens on the second Saturday of May every year. This initiative was used to create awareness about this day by creating postcards using the traditional method of cut and paste, and mailing these postcards to people around the world by snail mail. Here are my postcards created using the cut & paste method & mailed in their original form to celebrate the world collage day in 2019.
