After the study I took job for financial security at Katuri shilpa sala Tenali Andhra Pradesh, after six months I left the job and went to New Delhi for the Art Residency Program at NIV Art centre in march 2012, there I met few Indian contemporary Artists like K.s.Radhakrishnaan, Mitusen, George Martin, Bose Krishnamachari, etc,,,, and I had visited all Galleries and Museums in delhi, few months later I had got call from Space Art Studio from Baroda, it is surprise to me then I reach baroda in may 2012, here I workedtill jan 2014 and I learnt a lot about Art and Art world.
After Space studio I got Call from college of fine Arts V.N.S.G.University Surat as an visiting Faculty, after one year I took charges as an Ad-hoc Faculty in this college only, when I entered this college I am the only one faculty In Sculpture Dept and students also six members there is no space to take classes,no infrastructure it was too difficult to handle but I never give up my challenges, so that is the result today we have proper studio places enough infrastructure and we have four faculties in Sculpture Dept , we startd ceramic dept also.
