PROFILESHOTSonali is an illustrator from Bangalore, India. Her studio is watched over by a fairly wild cat.

She has worked on wide range of projects over the last six years; developing her interests and her craft.

In recent years illustration for publications, particularly novels and children’s books have captured her imagination. She enjoys creating new worlds and setting a sense of place, even more so to well written words.

She is currently pursuing a Masters in Design at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. Her goal is to update her knowledge on current trends in the field of design and its application to illustration. She is also keen on collaboration with designers of other disciplines and a strong development of research based methods of practice.

Almost half  way through the course, her thoughts have focused on the imperatives for sustainable design and the possibilities of how her abilities could play a part in change.

She is now working on writing and illustrating books that imagine a brighter and smarter future.


Some of her clients include: Pioneer Valley Book USA , La Courte Echelle Canada, Unicef India, Google Inc, Pratham books, Roli books, Hachette books, Juggernaut books, Restless Books NY, Current conservation, Pro Kabaddi, Vh1 and Adidas.
