About the Artist

Photo by: Jay Paul


I was raised in India, in a small town called Ajmer, in Rajasthan.  My dream was to live in an invisible house, read books and draw for a living…but reality took its toll and I ended up climbing the winding staircase of the corporate world.

After wandering around the grey corridors for a decade, a little bird inside me led me back to my childhood dream.  I got introduced to this amazing world of creating and making where you can give shape to your ideas.  I call it Birds at Noon.

Today, I am a full-time ceramic artist, working in clay, drawing, painting, reading, and learning to open windows of my invisible house.

I am on a journey of exploration, expression, and creation;  trying to find my way through the clay.  I do not strive for perfection, but be led by the flow, which I get being in that moment.

Mythology, symbols, text, antiques, cultures, and history intrigue me.  I am drawn to the richness of color, texture, and architecture.

My designs are the borrowings from my upbringing in India, the swatch of colors that fill my memory.  The drawings are the objects and places that aroused my curiosity.  Every layer tells a story, which I experienced in making and living.
