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
Will notify you once it’s available in the stores.

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
