Inder was born in Kenya and immigrated to Australia in 1988, completing school in Australia. Inder's interest in art was first cultivated at a young age and further developed during high school.

Having experienced mental health issues as a teenager, Inder found great comfort and solace in art; it was a safe place. Inder enjoys creating artwork in the solitude of her studio.

Inder is inspired by beauty all around her, from the sunrise at the break of dawn, to the dew that settles on the grass blades each morning. Inder's artwork is a celebration of the beauty and resilience of nature. Inder is fascinated by life; how a tiny seed can grow into the majestic tree or how a butterfly emerges from a cocoon.

Inder sees life as a series of thousands of tiny miracles, and she likes to capture these in her artwork.

"To me, happiness is about celebrating the little things and practicing compassion towards others.

The seeds embedded in the seed pods represent life. In each pod there is potential for the seeds to grow into something beautiful.

The leaves, like a light in darkness, radiate to offer hope and renew faith, especially during challenging periods that we all experience in life."
