I am a children’s book writer-illustrator and editor, and have worked for seven years in publishing in Chennai, India. I’ve written and illustrated picturebooks, teen-fiction and most recently, a YA graphic novel. I have a BA in English Literature but am a self-taught illustrator. My abiding love for the visual led me to pursue the Masters in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. It has been challenging and altered my vision and image-making in more ways than one. My narratives, verbal and visual, are both character-based, and I enjoy discovering and expressing distinct personalities in my work.
