b. 1987, Patiala, Punjab, India

an architect by education, works on diverse art & design projects ranges from visual art to craft development, spatial art installations to set/space design, poetry, music, sound explorations, performance, photography & film art.

In 2017, started an alternative education project ‘Shilp Khel’ that integrates craft & games to create an experiential learning environment for kids.

In 2019, Started facilitating LTAlearning through artWorkshop that intends to create an inclusive and nourishing environment for all those explorers who aspire to engage deeper in the process of ‘self-discovery’ through artistic experimentation, dynamic experiences and intuitive expressions. It’s a journey to serve communities with artistic, musical and playful learning exchange.

Later in 2019, also realized the need of open community circles where people can share and listen to each other’s heart with compassion. Started Circle: Sawal-E-Safar where we can ask difficult questions and collectively reflect upon our challenges of life. It’s a process of co-creation where every individual can explore the sense and the essence of ‘self’ in the larger ecosystem. It brings the harmony among all in the abundance of collective care, trust, love & simplicity:)

Life reveals it’s own mystery, it’s own way..
As it ordains..
learning further to co-create ‘Kikli’ a community living space, where people can come, stay, learn, work & grow in the rhythm of natural ecosystem.

A quiet life in nature, working with plants and microorganisms, walking in the forest, gazing sunshine, dancing with winds, singing with rivers, learning with kids & being helpful to people and nature around. To work which one hopes may be of some use.. then rest, silence, sunsets, music and love for everyone and everything in life.

To be, and be nothing.

To be, and be nothing,

in the timelessness.
