Pictures that tell tales

She believes her ideas come from observation:

“I am an observer, and most of my time is spent observing people and situations, – she says, – the rest of the time I am daydreaming. My illustrations are about friends, strangers and myself. Ideas come from random conversations, thinking about people, traveling, watching TV shows.”

Kalyani loves being able to do something different every day:

“Most days I love waking up and wondering what idea is going to catch up with me that day. I love the freedom of expressing anything I want to, using a medium I am passionate about. And more importantly that I can encapsulate everything I am passionate about on a piece of paper.”
