Puja's repertoire includes paintings, digital and video art, and sculpture; in a semi realistic style and a mix of abstraction and figuration. Working in series and a mix and match of media, her art adorns a colourful look. Her initial work featured iconic portraits and human figures often of semi-clad or nude couples in different moods and posturing, amidst a lush landscape of creepers and flowers with musical instruments and embellished with masks and crowns. Marked for a skillful brushwork, in a bright palette and carefully built texture, her earlier compositions encompassed whirls and bands generating a meditative ambience.

Innovating in spirit, Puja now works in new materials and different genres. She is currently working in a photo-realistic style and experiments with sculpture, digital and video art. A marked change is noticeable in her recourse. There is an interesting mix of the urban and rural milieu in her art that represents a rich tapestry of images and ideas inspired by her encounters during exploratory photographic voyages. Contemporary Indian city-scape, where the old and the new, the poor and the rich co-exist is featured in her surrealist imagery overlaid with graphic markings. The thrust of her creativity has clearly traversed from a more painterly stance to a layered conceptual and digital media genre in this series, while the imagery rotates around her spontaneous response to the changing Indian metro-scapes and the daily struggles of its inhabitants as featured in her most recent work titled Blow Horn.
