Loyal to the science training, my brain takes shelter in the scientific world while heart tugs to explore the art side of life. Straddling the worlds of art and science, I happened to stumble upon a designing job seven years ago and have been taking dives into the art world since then.

The scientist in me dabbles science communication, not restricted to science writing but also includes the skills in designing and art that I picked up along the way. I design books, posters, flyers, presentations and magazines for effective science communication.

Drawing came along while working on my master’s thesis and has taken different forms with different media, from pencils, charcoals and pens. Infatuated with colours and married to monochrome, I am still experimenting different aspects of art.

When I am not drawing or writing, I am travelling to faraway lands or holed up in the house with the company of books and coffee.
