Book illustration

Illustrator Sudakshina Ghosh

In my childhood, I loved browsing through the beautiful illustrations of children's books in English and my mother tongue, Bengali. The illustrations left a lasting impression on me and I found great joy creating my own fairy tale characters using different media.

Though I spent three decades teaching Chemistry, art has remained my constant companion. I have worked with traditional medium like pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, oil, acrylic, bronze as well as graphic art. And I have worked with unconventional medium like coffee.

It is a coincidence that I have been observing the behaviour of seagulls while living in Reading, UK. Hence I enjoyed expressing the various moods, emotions and activities of Olive and Jay.
