S for ....sea, surf, sailboats, seagulls, starfish, shells, seaweeds, and sunshine 🌊🐦🌞🐠⛵️
A recent project which felt just like a personal project since I had all the creative freedom and no limitations.

Cover art and lettering created for University of Minnesota Alumni @umnalumni Winter 2019 issue. Swipe to see the cover and close up detail.

For the first time I combined using paper on fabric to give an effect of a vintage book bound with cloth. The paper strips were prints off actual book pages.
Thank you to Art Director Kristi Anderson from Two Spruce Design and @goodillo .
Visit my story highlights ‘MN alumni mag’ to see some of the images during the making.

To me!...yes it’s my birthday today 😊
And to everyone else sharing their birthday with me today 🎉
(Funny to share this post /detail about me but it’s the message below that I wish to convey)
.
Birthdays are consistently the happiest days because Im consciously aware of the love and sooooo grateful for the people that are in my life....couldn’t have asked for anything more.
.
I’m thankful to be able to do what I love...Been creating art for ages but still can’t believe I draw and have fun with paper for a living. .
.
Sending my heartfelt gratitude to all on @instagram for following along and encouraging me through my exciting artistic journey. .
I’m striving to always uplift, inspire and spread joy through my work.

Artwork created for @papyrus

In process of creating my largest artwork so far with a golden autumn sunlight streaming in for effect 🌞

Thought I must mention all the papers in this post since there are questions everyday from so many of you. In addition there are some local handmade papers too. I use them in varied weights from 80- 300 gsm and a basic white glue.

In 2005 after my graduation from design school in Mumbai, I spent 3 years in Africa. During my time there I was so inspired by the nature and landscapes that I created these pieces and eventually showed prospective clients to give me a job. I’ve been obsessed with nature and animals since then 😊 (Posting work on IG that’s more than a decade old !!)
.
Slide to see the work. And also see more of the older projects in my stories/ story highlights under ‘old work’

Made with layers and layers of cut paper
