About me

I am a passionate artist-activist, an agent of change, and a curator hailing from Mauritius, nestled in Dubai for the past 10 years. As a person who aspires to bring about positive changes in society, I convey a strong message of empowerment through my art and artistic initiatives.

I am the founder of ZeeArts, an international art organization that connects artists from across the world through a myriad of artistic projects including Art Exhibition, and Fair, Artistic Retreat program, Artist Empowerment Program, Women Art Therapy, and Art Consultancy services. I have provided consistently impassioned support for women artists across the globe. I have been the mastermind behind an impressive array of artistic initiatives, including the Art Connects Women, an International Women’s Art Exhibition which is on its 5th Edition. I have launched the second Art Book- ‘Women Artists around the World’ in March 2020, kudus to 100 female artists from 100 different countries covering Europe, Africa & Middle-East, Americas, Asia, and Oceania.

As an artist, I have had my art exhibited in Africa, Europe, Middle East, United States, and Asia. I was the curator for World Art Dubai from 2017-2019 and have curated over 55 Art Exhibitions in UAE, Singapore, Georgia, Mauritius, France and Lebanon. I have received numerous honors under my belt for my arts and my various art initiatives. I was awarded the Leonardo Da Vinci Universal Artist Award in Florence, Italy, in Jan 2018 which was followed in February by the Femina - Women International Leadership Award in the artist category in Mumbai, India. As a Toastmaster I have been featured in 101 Artists Toastmaster by Armando Cristofori, which has been distributed worldwide.
