I'm a self-taught illustrator & credit my artistic gift to inheritance and long hours of work on technique and skill. My mother, an artist for many years, and my father, a poet and a writer, gave me inspiration and commitment to pursue art as a profession. As a young adult, I met Mr. D. H. Kunte, who became my mentor. My primary work has been in illustrations for greeting cards. But my love of children has steered me towards facilitating Children’s Art Workshops in India and illustrations for children’s books.
I work from my home studio in Mumbai, India. I also enjoy American pop music, Indian music and traditional Indian cooking.
Hi Rama. My book is called "Bats in the Air, Bats in My Hair." It is for the Kindergarten (5 yr old) to 3rd grade (8 or 9 yr. old). It is a fun book to read to the child and for them to use as a beginning read. I will check out your illustrations. Talk with you soon!
Hi Rama. Thank you for your comment. Yes, my book is available in India. I googled Heart of Stone, and came up with a link that sells it in your Country. I'd love for you to read it and contact me with comments.
Yes I did take a look at your illustration, they are really good. At present I am taking a break from the childrens stories and co-writing a resource book for the parents of children with special needs. I do have one childrens book ready for publication and will start up again in the fall. I will keep you in mind if I am looking for an illustrator.
