As a busy artist she understands the importance of living in the present moment.

“I am continually inspired by my relationships, by what is taboo, the occult, my lineage, and the ability for others to love and be loved despite the cruelty they have faced...it allows me to be a channel for all that is meant to pass through me.”

 “Neha in her room, in peak natural lighting.  Imagining beauty outside of an Eurocentric lens is key to my work.  We are at a point where diversity is being celebrated, this is monumental but there needs to be more. Rather than being tokens for consumption - we can be the leaders of how our image, narrative and art is produced, funded + handled on all levels. I want others to believe this. I want to inspire my community and environment to share themselves wholeheartedly, not the idea of themselves they believe any oppressive authority wants them to be.”
