She pursued her Master’s degree at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, Vadodara, where she was exposed to an urban sensibility. She was also an artist in residence at the Ecole d’ Art, Aix-en-Provence from 1993 to 1995 where she was influenced in the formative years of her practice by the French movement Supports/Surfaces, especially by Claude Viallat, and also had conversations with some of the group members at the time. Inventing her own creative techniques, using organic material and varied kinds of papers, her installations in the form of paper scrolls remain unique in their conceptions and execution.
