About me

I’m an Indian native. I grew up with parent surrounded by neighbors and relatives, listening lots of folk stories. As a kid, I always enjoyed watching classical animated cartoons and exploring art of colorful Indian culture. There were very less kids interested in drawing and painting by that time, and my curiosity for the art landed me taking fine art as major when I entered 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” an animated short film by great artist and pioneer Animator Bhimsen Khurana in india and my dream came true for learning under art masters when I get into an internship at Climb Media Mumbai. After finishing my masters, I did full time jobs at major studios like Vama Communication, Maya Digital Studios and Varmora Infotech. My goal as an artist is to design and create marvelous background images and concept art for film-tv-gaming industry. I also enjoy illustrating for children’s books in kidlit publishing industry.

Apart from all these, I’m a passionate En plein air painter. On my spare time, I take art education by attending workshops, hiking in woods, traveling as much as possible for various life experiences. I try to spread art knowledge with everyone and encourage them for creativity.
