Academic & Teaching Portfolio
Between 2007 and 2017 I worked at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore, South India. I founded the Storybook Lab at Srishti, led several client publishing projects and taught both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in visual communication, illustration and contemporary art practice. I have also been an associate lecturer on the MA Fine Art Digital course at Camberwell College of Arts and given lectures on professional practice at Plymouth University and London College of Communication. I am currently a Visiting Tutor on the BA (Hons) Illustration course at Arts University Bournemouth.
I have over 18 years experience working as a freelance illustrator for clients including: Bacardi, Orange, BBC, HSBC, The Guardian, The Independent, FT and The Times. My work has been featured in books on contemporary illustration published by Gestalten, AVA, Duncan Baird and The Association of Illustrators. I have also exhibited across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Mall Galleries in London and the Alla Prima International Art Fair in Delhi.
