When we listen to music we almost touch art but not fully. Again, when we you visualize a piece of art, we listen to a music it is meant to convey, we almost hear it, but can’t execute. That’s the unconventional beauty that bridges music with art. When I sing a song, I have a picture painted to explore it’s depth.
When someone listens to the song, the picture he/she paints may be different. That’s how it works. Therefore, it is not difficult to balance. ” Some of her art work titled “Aberrant” , “Embossing Dusk ” and “Conscience of India” are renowned.

Talking about her journey she added  “I studied Architecture, having taken Music as profession the first thing I got to hear from non-professional circuit was ‘ did you not get a job? ‘ In my professional circle also I faced judgement as well.I have always prioritized quality content over money. I used get judged and got to hear ” People like you have a back option as profession, so money barely matters to u guys”. Honestly none of these demotivated me.
Another big challenge I faced is for being a woman. ” It’s easier for woman to get success” some people used to utter such stuff out of jealousy. The funniest part is, you can’t be honest about being single. Once you confessed that you ain’t dating anybody. Your name gets linked with every guy you hang around. Specially guys in your industry”.
