Her current works coined - Portraits in Nature and Masked in Nature is a collection of ceramic works that explores the connections between natural forms, human emotions and animal instincts.
Her fascination with nature started the ball rolling for this journey - the starting point was a study of the body and facial structure, the pose, the textures of the skin, the feathers and all such peculiarities which make up its unique identity, simply put what makes a lion a lion and not just a cat. The deeper aspect which became the inspiration was the distinction we make between humans, animals and nature. Questions turned into the quest for answers and so started the process of creative endeavors.
