Kalaa Art & Design

For many, it would be a place to sharpen their artistic creativity, but for many others “Kalaa” would be a moderator to bring out a hidden artist or design solution ability from within in an unexpected way in which they were oblivious about so far!

Founder & Creative Director

Being an educator and a mother myself, I strongly believe in the power of creative learnings, especially in today’s digital world, where attention span is defined by the length of YouTube videos and creativity by the chatbox emoji icons. I promise that taking a moment and getting in tune with your inner self needs a headspace and holding a paintbrush or pencil in your hand can be that magic wand for many.

Art & Design had been my love from my formative years. As a design professional, I loved to inculcate my teaching with creative exploration with a multitude of designs, influenced by traditional influence, crafts, flora, fauna. environment, culture, social, and political scenario.
I have spent 15 years of my career in University teaching and in the Design Institute (National Institute of Fashion Technology) as Professor and department head. I’m a Ph.D. from the University of Delhi, India, Faculty of Science in “Sustainable Dyes and its implementation on Designs”.
I appreciate art and design forms with its innate beauty involving a Scientific and sustainable approach for better ecological models.
I have presented and published various research papers in natural dyes and Sustainable design in international journals and forums.
