Hi there! I am Kavita Rajput, an illustrator based in New York City. Growing up in Mumbai, I spent endless hours sketching and creating decorative henna and rangoli patterns, finding constant inspiration in the celebration of color and patterns of India.
While I have been drawing and painting for most of my life, I never went to a formal art school. A graduate of the London Business School, I worked in banking through most of my 20s. An after-work watercolor class at the New York Academy of Art reminded me of my childhood dreams and changed the course of my life.
Today, my greatest sense of gratitude comes from the fact that I get to draw and paint everyday. I love traditional watercolors and combining them with digital art. I love creating visual stories filled with lush color and decorative details. I love people watching, taking long walks in the city, watching Bollywood movies and having endless cups of chai. I have lived in Mumbai, London, Singapore and New York. I feel at home in large crowds of diverse people and love the anonymity of big city life.
I really appreciate your visit! Drop me a note to say Hi.
