“I was born in India and raised in Canada as a Punjabi Indo-Canadian and felt pulled between two cultures. The mesh of these two cultures is what I want my work to showcase. Not conforming to the society-driven structure of choosing a singular identity is fueled by the confidence I feel in my fine-art education. My life is my art and I will always champion for sharing the underrepresented Brown story.”
