I am an artist, illustrator and designer. I have been exploring the many facets of art and illustrations through sketching and observing my surroundings and making sure I take a sketchbook on all my journeys. I fell in love with watercolours a long time ago and the spark hasnt faded yet. The love for illustrations came with richly illustrated Russian Children’s Books I read as a child. I have been exploring new ways of sketching along with urban sketching and travel sketching. I am nature lover and obsessed with natural history illustrations and live sketching in nature. I love travel and to explore and understand the world around me, I have an unquenchable thirst for finding new cultures, colours, themes to bring about in my conceptual drawings and watercolour illustrations.
I have a degree in fine arts from Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath and worked as a photographer, Writer, Sub editor before becoming a full time illustrator and designer.
I strongly believe that the world is fast paced and we tend to not observe our surroundings and that sketching is the best way to observe, that through sketching you can slow down, learn, create and document your daily life while having time to feel the different textures that life brings us.
