Hey there, I’m Ria! I have achieved my Interactive Media Design degree from Raffles International (Mumbai). Along with being a multimedia artist, I am also an origami artist and a freelance photographer. For me, the world is a creation of our mind. A very real projection of what we see and how we perceive and it’s this perception that ultimately defines us. Thus to define me, I want to tell you what I see. I see the world as full of colours, where every moment we pass and every person we meet adds a different stroke, a new shade to the canvas of life. My life is a multi-coloured painting!
Tell us about Ori-queenia
Girl Power! And that is exactly what Ori-queenia wants to achieve in this modern world of creativity. Ori-queenia just came to me as a force of happiness in 2015. Everything for me revolves around origami and photography. Origami is something that gives me immense exuberance. We fabricate origami invites and decor. When it comes to photography, we do it with a little twist. We incorporate origami props in all our photo shoots.
Why did you set up the company?
Ever since I was a little child I loved paper. I collected tit bits of paper from here and there. I love the touch and feel of paper. So when I was introduced to OrigamiI knew this was something I wanted to specialise in. The collaboration of photography and origami is what made me start Ori-queenia

Who has been your biggest inspiration?
My siblings have been my inspiration in some way or the other. They push me to work harder. And to work even harder when I start to lose hope. It’s their motivation which gets me back on track.
How do you balance your work life and home life?
I think when it comes to balancing my work and home life I am blessed with people who encourage me to work. With having supportive family members the task of juggling two lives becomes a lot simpler.
What advice do you have for women starting out on their own?
It’s never too late to be what you have always wanted to be. Go and grab what’s yours before someone else does!
