About Me

Subhashini Narayanan is an artist, illustrator and surface designer

I love creating whimsical, dreamy art using watercolor, gouache, and ink. Inspired by nature, wildlife, and florals, I paint joyful contemporary designs. I enjoy experimenting with new painting techniques in my sketchbook and share them through my skillshare courses. I started my career as a surface designer in a design studio. After a few years, I decided to pursue my dream to be a full-time freelance artist. I currently live in Chennai with my husband Kedhar (a fellow artist), and two little daughters.
