I am a 13 year old child artist and I make sculptures out of stoneware clay and also paint acrylic on canvas. I am 9th Std. Student of St. Annes High school Mumbai.
When I was 5 year old playing with clay and made one Ganesha....my mother saw that and she taught me how to make sculptures. 


My Parents always encouraged  my talent, and many other people who helped me gain so much success till now.

My sculptures are often abstract figures of tribal people, and I even sculpt ceramic shoes and tea pots. The sculptures that I make are Raku fired which gives them a shiny effect.

 

 My paintings are of villagers and farmers whom I see from train while I go to my hometown.
