About
I am an Indian-born, American designer and illustrator based in New York. Before working as an illustrator, I designed and art directed  magazines such as Martha Stewart Living and Dwell while frequently collaborating with illustrators and photographers on editorial projects. Prior to graphic design, I also worked for a decade as an Information Technology Analyst and Programmer. I moved to New York City to study graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and have lived here since then. My husband, Greg, a still life photographer and I live in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn. I was born in Calcutta, India and also have a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Jadavpur University (Calcutta).
