Hello, I’m Amrita. I am a lot of things.

I am an Architect, by training, with a Masters Degree in Architecture from The University of Nottingham, UK. I have worked with architectural firms in Mumbai, London, and Kolkata.

I’m a self-taught, contemporary artist. Following my career in architecture, I was part of a year-long Mixed Media Arts Residency at Nottingham Trent, in 2014. My work celebrates the existence and randomness of extraordinary human lives around me. It is inspired by the built environment, the daily mundane, and the occasional adventure. My abstract style merges mark-making and bold brush strokes with ink detailing, that is reminiscent of architectural renderings.

I am the editor of FAKE Art which is a magazine that solely focuses on emerging artists and their struggles. I also run workshops for beginner and intermediate artists.

As a writer, I have worked as a commissioned editor and book designer with publishing houses in UK and India, which has led me to work on my own books, which are currently works in progress. I have written fiction pieces for Bridge Eight and Hippocampus Magazine. My non-fiction pieces have appeared in publications like The Writing Cooperative, Huffington Post, Tripoto, The Bangalore Mirror, Honest Cooking, Grafitti and TechinAsia. I am passionate about helping aspiring writers find their voice and work through the publishing industry.
