Artist Vision

My skills combine calligraphy, typography and digital art. My interest began with drawing, followed by calligraphy. In the beginning, I followed the traditional path set by master calligraphers and was very keen on acquiring the necessary skills and techniques taught by the best. But with time, effort and enthusiasm towards innovation, I began carving my own path and setting my own trademark upon my creative work. With a Bachelor (B.F.A) & Masters (M.F.A) degree in Applied Art from College of Art, Tilak Marg, Delhi. With a focus on Calligraphy Development.

“I believe there are high standards to be maintained and constantly sharpened or improved.”
