Her firm, Raji RM & Associates sprang out of her true calling – which came after receiving an MBA and working as a reasearch director. Her ideas come from so many inspirations, many found in local museums.

Raji says ” I sometimes rediscover a work that will completely inspire me. It could be as simple as a color or combination of colors. Or how a work is framed or displayed. This can send me off in a tangent about how I want to spin a room, or the mood I want to capture.”
