I am a graphic designer turned children’s book illustrator who loves colour, texture and storytelling.
I bring my whimsical characters to life with mixed media mainly: watercolour, gouache, colour pencils and pastels. My work is influenced by lush tropical landscapes, folklore, food and my bustling hometown Mumbai. When I’m not drawing, I am busy obsessing over my balcony garden and playing retro video games.
I’ve been drawing since before I can remember but I graduated with a BFA in Typography from Sir JJ institute (2009) and MA in design and branding from University of Arts, London (2011).
At the moment I'm
Brainstorming/writing my debut author/illustrator picturebook
Enjoying plein air painting and sketchbooking
Learning to grow vegetables and flowers in a small space
Obsessing over french ultramarine
Reading everything from picturebooks to graphic novels.
