I take pleasure in producing abstract and humorous collages for my own enjoyment, as they offer a great deal of creative freedom. In my opinion, the design and art industry can be quite self-important at times, so I make a conscious effort to remember that art does not always require a purpose or function, and can simply exist for the sake of itself.

Body Talk Zine Issue One
The Body Talk zine is a collaborative project involving various artists who shared their personal experiences with mental health struggles and negative body image through their artwork. I was fortunate enough to contribute to this project after reaching out to its creator, designer Sudeeksha Somani. The zine was published both digitally and in print and has since gained a growing audience on social media.
In addition to my contribution to the zine, I was also given the opportunity to take over the Body Talk Instagram page for a day, where I engaged with individuals who shared their own struggles with mental health and how art and design have helped them. I am proud to have been a part of such a meaningful project that aims to break down stigmas surrounding mental health and promote positive body image.
