I WAS BORN and raised in India. I moved to the United States at the age of 18, carrying my entire life in one suitcase weighing about 20 lbs. I began my artistic career in the States, and my work has always been informed by my experience as a migrant. I completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette and continued on to receive a Masters degree in Photography from the University of Houston. I am currently an Associate Professor of Art at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri – a community where I have lived longer than anywhere else. It’s here in Kirksville that I met my husband and had our beautiful son, Kavi, with whom I can finally share the language that I grew up speaking.
