I want to make people happy

I see stories and beauty everywhere. I try to capture and share that everyday love in my art. Each piece is created in my home-studio in San Francisco that I share with my hubbahubba and two purr-machines.

I am an Indian-American artist and illustrator. I was born in Calcutta and raised in suburban California, I create art because it makes me happy - with hopes it can make others happy, too. I create new illustrations every week. I also create original wood etchings by burning intricate patterns into raw wood.

I have worked with Hasbro, Paramount Pictures, ABC, Disney, Boom Studios and a variety of other clients. My prints and cards are sold in retail shops across the country including the American Museum of Natural History, Books Inc, and Rare Device. I am currently working on my debut graphic novel, Pashmina, to be published by First Second Books.

I absolutely love my job and I hope that what I do makes you smile!
