Sayani Mukherjee


Sayani was born and brought up in Santiniketan, India, having spent her school and college days there studying in the Visva-bharati University. She was awarded her educational degrees in the science stream, though drawing and other conventional forms of illustrations have always been her passion. The environment of Santiniketan influenced her to gain a passion for art and culture alongside conventional studies.

Sayani graduated from Visva-Bharati University in 2010.  Since then she has completed her doctoral degree in microbiology.

At this stage of her career she changed her focus to fulfil her dream of becoming an artist. The very first exposure to digital art form boosted her to start exploring this amazing world of creations. It has been an intensive yet exciting process of exploring and learning various illustration softwares and formats. Currently Sayani is working on a number of children book projects and is continuously learning from every experience that she is gathering. She has been greatly interested in the digital art platform and especially in exploring character design for children. She believes that it’s an exciting journey to illustrate the characters for a children’s book. She feels like she's living in those characters; how they would react, smile or express, as her sketches develop with the story.

Sayani believes it is an amazing experience to meet the author’s expectations to make the book
