Growing up in India I became interested in the Burqa, its perception in the world and what it means to be a woman wearing one. Gradually for me this garment took on a deeper resonance and I became interested in exploring this further through my drawing and printmaking practice. This resulted in a series of images that take a warmhearted look at the Burqa as a metaphor for what we choose to conceal or reveal to the world. Hence the question, ‘What do you do in yours?’
