Surface Pattern Design
I just love the way surface patterns beautify everyday objects of our lives, they just make me happy!
I enjoy the story telling and the puzzle solving part of putting together beautiful seamless patterns. There is something fascinating in the visual perpetual quality they have. It is a one of kind joy to start with a totally blank canvas, and to see emerge from there slowly, and almost magically, a never ending pattern!
I like the versatility of vector formats for surface pattern designs while printing on various surfaces and therefore I make sure to create my designs as scalable vector files. Like everything else that I do, my drawings are also inspired by pretty objects & little lives found in nature and seasons.
Wallpaper designed with one of my surface pattern designs was featured by Smashing Magazine in Dec 2018.

“A Word With Wilderness : Poems Inspired by American Nature”
Since I wanted my book illustrations to retain a raw, authentic hand-drawn appeal, and not overpower my poems, I kept them sketchy and used a very limited color palette throughout. For my 32 poems, I have created 32 illustrations, some of them are showcased below.
