Working out of her home studio in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Sakshi is naturally drawn toward the fascinating world of children's book illustration, where bold colours and scribbly lines inspire her work. Sakshi has been published and recognized in the U.K. and North America and enjoys the challenges of storytelling and experimenting with different styles of artwork. Drawing inspiration from nature, Sakshi's work is heavily influenced by imagining and observing her surroundings through the eyes of children, where bears are getting ready for a tea party and the squirrels are dancing into spring. Born in Mumbai, Sakshi moved to England to pursue a bachelor’s degree in animation from Teesside University, which led to her master’s degree in children’s book illustration from Cambridge School of Art. Since then, Sakshi has been writing and illustrating picture books all across the globe as a freelance children's book illustrator. She hopes that her children’s books and illustrations put smiles on the faces of children all over the world, as it certainly gives her immense pleasure in writing and illustrating for them.
