Prologue

Growing up in a flat in Abu Dhabi, I spent most of my play time indulging in arts and crafts. A huge part of my childhood book collection was “how to” books on a variety of creative activities from pencil shading and watercolours to origami and crochet. At 17, I moved to India to study art and design and there was no turning back. India was a marvelous experience with its beautiful architecture, traditional crafts and of course, great food. Two years later, I moved to England to pursue an undergraduate degree in Illustration.
Currently based in Bournemouth, I spend my free time sketching, blogging and watching crime shows on TV.

“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem.” — Captain Jack Sparrow

Whether it’s my lifestyle choices or my approach to work, I believe in exploring the road not taken. The accepted approach doesn’t always have to be the best approach. I hold that smart work is far more fruitful than hard work and to be creative, one must lose the fear of being wrong. To quote Einstein,  “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
