Entry Description

My life and my home is incomplete without the presence of the idol of Lord Krishna and a lot of peacock feathers. Krsna is the name of a new colour inspired by my love for them. The theme of the book is about my Indian wedding where I am dressed up in this new shade of blue green instead of the traditional reds and maroons. This book is my expression of my love for the Divine Lover Krsna and the dream of the real one coming into my life.

About Designer

I am — a colour-addict. An addiction that touches on all aspects of my life. Work and education has taken me from diversity of Virginia and Washington, D.C. to the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, Florida on to the cornfields of the Mid-West of USA, to the sparkling skyline of New York City and back to the multi-coloured magic of my homeland India, that bestowed me with the title of ‘An Art Director for a Billion Indian’s’ during my term at Philips Design. However, the irresistible, energetic and mesmerizing magic of New York City drew me back into its fold. The passion for design and the aspiration to touch lives, to make a positive difference and leave behind a powerful imprint with my talent is what has always driven me and continues to do so still. The curiosity to learn, explore and get accustomed with new and varied cultures gives me the spring in my step. When I’m not playing with colours or designs, the next best place to find me is swaying to the beats of Indian, Spanish or Arabic music, or deep in conversations over coffee and wine with friends. Design, music, art, conversations, love and smiles are all that make me, me.
