During my childhood my mother always kept me busy with some paper folding books & soon there were hardly any volumes of such books left to be explored.
I then shifted to origami & it kept me busy for long continuous hours, this developed a creative interest in me.

This was the time when I started experimenting, whenever i got a waste paper I used to try folding it to make some recognizable form out of it.

As i grew up i used my experience & started making models out of cardboard, as I kept on working after some time I developed a good hold on the material & the technique, then I could make almost any model without its prototype(with enough finishing).
It includes photo frames, pen stands, name plates, CD racks, jewelry box, and more...
I also did 3D origami, glass painting, emboss painting & photography.

Then recently a few years back I came across the art called 'paper quilling'. After making dozens of greeting cards with quilling for friends and family, now I make daily use products with paper quilling that are decorative & unconventional.

I have completed B Des. studies from Symbiosis Institute of Design, Pune(India), in Communication Design major in Animation(Stop-motion).
Now I am going places and freelancing for any project that involves craft. Read Less
