I was brought up in India amidst myths, folktales, magical stories and millions of culturally diverse people. Having lived in the middle of contraries and paradoxes all along, it wasn’t really easy to know where one was going or could possibly go in life. My ‘illustrious’ career began by squiggling on the walls at home and developed as I surreptitiously doodled on schoolbooks, much to the dismay of my teachers. My undeniable inclination towards art lead me to the National Institute of Design in Gujarat, India where I specialised in Animation Film Design. Since then I have worked on several animation and illustration projects in India and UK with clients such as Nickelodeon UK and Periyar Tiger Reserve, Kerala, India. I graduated from the National Film & Television School, UK with an MA in Animation Direction in 2011.
