Born in the Indian sub-continent and educated in Asia, Europe and the United States, I currently live in California. My work is informed by all these cultures. Passionate about bringing together elements of classic design from a variety of sources to create something new and original, I bring a modern sensibility and love of construction to the art of knitting. In the past three years, I have published a full wardrobe of garments from fingerless mittens, cowls, hats, scarves, shawls, sweaters, and more. I conduct knitting workshops seasonally, regularly contribute promotional designs for some of California’s favorite local yarn shops, and have collaborated with several independent dyers across the country.
