I sell Art Prints, Postcards, Bookmarks and Greeting cards in my shop. I love to tell stories through my Illustrations and Art.
Being born and brought up in a country as diverse as India, I was always surrounded by interesting stories and loved to draw them. I took various art courses throughout my childhood and did an Under graduation In applied Art and came to the United States to pursue my Masters in Visual Development. I studied at the Academy of Art University. Personal experiences and observation are the key to my Illustrations.

4. Tell us two (or more) other interesting things about you.

10. What has been your biggest success and/or proudest moment since opening your Etsy shop?
I had an order for 2 sets of postcards. I got a 5 star review and the customer sent a hand written note to tell me how much she loved the postcards and she would definitely be a return customer! It was a very special moment.

11. What's next for you?
I am working on creating some handmade stamps with my illustrations and make hand stamped Art Prints and Greeting Cards. I am also preparing for Alternative Press Expo that is going to be held in San Jose on October 3rd and 4th. Lot of new products and exciting news coming up.
