A mixed-media artist/designer and a business enthusiast. I am Imaginatively gritty, a daydreamer, a traveller who is constantly looking for something new and adventurous, and this inspired me to create my blog to share my experiences. For as long as I remember, I have wanted to be a creator, to make something, whether it's sculpting, sewing my own dress or sketching. As a designer, I have been working for the last 12 years in retail stores, export houses, and design studios.  My designs incorporate new surfaces, materials, and elements that I find interesting in nature, but mostly it's all about the silhouette. Besides that, I have served as a faculty at NIFT, Bangalore and Arch Academy of Design, Jaipur which allowed me to connect with new ideas and talented young people (not that I am calling myself old!)


I've had the luxury of being able to travel to Europe for studies, Australia and New Zealand for my passion of costumes and many, many remote mountains in India and Bhutan due to my craziness and love of mountains. I have found myself deeply addicted to local food, culture, art, music and meeting wonderful people.


I hope that you leave this site with either a newly learned skill, an idea, or a feeling of confidence. If I can help you in any way contact me, write a comment or whatever method you prefer.

I enjoy reading all of your comments and questions so don’t be shy! Love Swati
