About

I am a Graphic Designer and Artist with a penchant for projects that have the potential for social change.

My recent work has been focused on community projects around the preservation of Edgbaston Reservoir and access for local communities around Ladywood, Birmingham.

If you’re looking for a designer to work with on your heritage, arts or community project send me an email:

Arts & Crafts Background

Alongside being a graphic designer, I have a multi-disciplinary arts practice involving painting, textiles, printing, ceramics and drawing. Where possible, I try to involve these skills in my designs to retain a tactile human element – which is important when working on people focused projects. More of my artwork can be seen here.

South Asian Arts Collective

I am a co-founder of SAAC (South Asian Arts Collective) which aims to bring the diverse South Asian community together to have conversations about our heritage and the British Asian experience. We are currently putting a body of work together that will be exhibited at Kings Heath Art Rooms in June 2021. We are hoping to carry on this momentum and work on more collective projects.

Don’t Settle X Birmingham Museums Trust

Along with other artists I have secured a Youth Engagement Structure consultancy role as a part of a Don’t Settle and Birmingham Museum Trust initiative. We will be designing ways for Birmingham museum to better represent the heritage of Birmingham’s communities.
