Current brand collaboration:

I choose to punch and paint on pieces of leather to communicate my thoughts rather than oh-so-common words. The result is a collection of premium designer hand crafted leather goods that exude brilliant uniqueness.
Each product is a fruit of intense thought process followed by laborious hours spent in workshop with an intention of expressing my love for art through useful creations.
— Aks Mathur

Tell me all about your likes, inspiration, intended audience— with relentlessness, I interviewed Aks to reveal the essence of this work, who it would best serve, and why it meant to much to him to bring into the world.

I am well-versed in entering into the realm of someone else's emotional comfort zone when photographing.

Capturing the story of products made with love surprisingly proved to be no different a task. 

I am so proud of the voice he trusted on me to give to these beautifully-crafted accessories for thoughtful fashion. 

And I am ever-inspired by this talented artist.

This collection is inspired by the circular form of Moon. The uneven and raw surface of moon and that’s why each piece has a raw vintage touch to it. Each piece in this collection is handcrafted, which makes each piece unique to the wearer.

This collaborative experience between two artists and two brands proved so much more rewarding than I could have ever anticipated.
