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 Master’s in Visual Arts with Illustration as major from Maharaja Sayajirao University, Vadodara, Gujarat, India in year 2009. 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 entered into motherhood in 2013, I shifted my career on work from home module, which helped me to grow as an artist providing my skills for freelance projects along with taking care and having fun with my kid.
I love to Background Designing and Painting environments for animation and gaming industry. The most enjoyable experience for me is to paint color and light, color keys and color scripts. 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. Apart from all these I am a passionate en plein air painter whom you will see painting outdoors very often, be it any season and time.
When I am not pursuing art for my living you would find me attending art workshops, hiking in woods, traveling around for various life experiences and evangelizing art to bring out the creativity in everyone.
