Apart from being a passionate en plein air painter who loves to design backgrounds and environments for animation and gaming industry I also enjoy illustrating for children’s books in kidlit publishing industry. My goal as an artist is to design and create marvelous background images and concept art for film-tv-gaming industry.
I was born and brought up in diverse and multicultural country of India and currently live in the beautiful Bay Area, California. As a kid, I grew up listening to folk stories and always enjoyed watching classical animated cartoons and exploring art of colorful Indian culture. My curiosity for the art and hunger to learn more about it lead me to the journey of studying Fine Arts as major in in college.
I graduated from Maharaja Sayajirao University with post diploma in Visual Art-Fine Art, majoring in illustration. Being kid, I was fascinated by “ ek chidiya anek chidiya” https://youtu.be/JhOIXi0R3B0 an animated short film by great artist and pioneer Animator Bhimsen Khurana in india and my dream came true for learning by working under his guidance during my internship at Climb Media Mumbai. After finishing my masters, I worked for full time at major studios like Vama Communication(Ahmedabad), Maya Digital Studios(Mumbai) and Varmora Infotech (Ahmedabad).
When I am not pursuing art for my living you would find me attending art workshops, hiking in woods, travelling around for various life experiences and evagelizing art to bring out the creativity in everyone.
