In appreciation of her talent, she has been awarded National Scholarship from the Department of culture, ministry of Human Resources (1996-98), and an award from Gujarat Lalit Kala Academy in Painting (1998).

The artist has been quoted as saying: “I tend to move along with life and phases such as motherhood and nurturing also found place in my work. Each life experience provides space for different emotions and reactions. New things happen and their influence and repercussions are bound to find a place in my work. Certain things stay with you and new things naturally add on. My works may get triggered by media, places, books and also my personal experiences. In that sense they are universal in nature, though I see myself in most of them. Eventually I paint what I strongly believe. I essentially react to the outside and respond to everything from inside.”
