Kalyani Ganapathy

Kalyani Ganapathy"Your career is not a ladder. It is a jungle gym," says Kalyani Ganapathy, a gifted illustrator who lives and works in Tamil Nadu's Nilgiris District. "There may be times when you have to take a step down to move three steps up."

Kalyani studied graphic design and advertising in Bangalore, and worked at a number of agencies before she decided to switch from design to illustration, and from full-time work to freelancing. In her own words, she is someone who just "woke up one morning, got out of my graphic designer avatar, walked into an art shop, bought a bag full of material, and started drawing." She describes herself as a visual storyteller, and currently illustrates and designs books for adults and children. Her website showcases a stunning range of projects that she has worked on, including work done for The Gulabi Gang Art Project and Poetry in Public India.
