Meet former Air Force pilot, who is now a creative entrepreneur

Former Air Force pilot Prabhjot Kour Dhillon now works as a paper craft artist and owns a venture called  Handkraftd.

The paper-cutting art form is mainly about cutting paper intricately by hand to produce a design. Prabhjot's designs are mostly related to defence themes like aircraft, submarines, and insignias.

When she was posted in Bhuj, Prabhjot stumbled across a paper-cutting art work and wanted to give it a shot. Since then, there has been no looking back for her.

She has been doing this work for the last three-four years, but commercialised it only a year ago. Prabhjot takes orders online and all her craft work is displayed on her Facebook page.

This former Air Force pilot believes that opportunities are plenty nowadays and art businesses  are thriving online. Though she feels that lack of awareness regarding this art form poses a challenge to market her work.
