They/Them

Image 1: Kitty, a light-skinned brown femme, is sitting on the floor and tying a pink rope around their left ankle and thigh. They have black hair tied up in a bun, thick angled eyebrows, and straight bangs. They have two lip piercings, tattoos and multiple silver earrings. They are wearing a light pink lace bodysuit.

I am an agender & queer, South Asian artist who is passionate about community building and all things design. I'm also a lifelong student of anti-oppression work, creating safer spaces and design for social change. I facilitate disability justice training with the CRIP Collective, have organized art events with the Non-Binary Colour Collective, and I completed the 2021 Artscape Daniels Launchpad Emerging Creatives Bursary Program with a focus on design and creative entrepreneurship. I have also explored community theater, burlesque, installation art, poetry, photography, modeling and filmmaking.
