My work is inspired by the dynamics of Light and Colour,
and the effect on one's sensory perception and environment.

I have produced 2D and 3D works,  with a multi-disciplinary approach; painting, sculpture, installation to video. Delivering creative learning projects that stimulate the senses, touching on social, environmental, economic and cultural issues.  Exploring materials and techniques that have a low-impact on the environment, using natural materials alongside building technologies. I teach Permaculture design and specializes on topics such as “How to become resilient in an environment facing disaster.” in Italy, India and Nepal. Designed and landscaped gardens,  constructed large-scale systems for eco solutions.
My love for the Himalayan regions has given me the fuel for my work in "Exploring the Human relation to the Environment”, environmental education, design consultancy and implementation of projects since 2003.
I have worked in collaboration with diverse groups and individuals at grassroots, government, institutions at international level in UK, EU, Mexico and Asia.
My aim is to reach and encourage these communities to be part of the solution and become resilient to impacts of climate change. my focus is to " Use Arts science and technology as the vehicle for delivering environmental awareness and engage communities in participatory approach" Encouraging the development of Ecovillages is part of that mission.
