Puneet grew up playing around with paint in her mother’s art studio, where art supplies never seem to dwindle. She creates out of curiosity & to ground herself - as some feelings can only be expressed through brushstrokes. To sate her curious mind, Puneet took classes ranging from Geography, Drawing, Time-Travel in Media, Philosophy & Anthropology of Hip-Hop while attending the University of Victoria. Puneet currently works as an environmental steward & educator while expressing herself visually through painting. For her, art is the personification of her love for nature.
