Navina Chhabria is an illustrator based in Michigan. Her love of color and strong female characters are a definite nod to her Indian heritage. She discovered a calling for illustration in a previous life while leading a design team at a tech company. She went on to get her degree in Graphic Design from Billy Blue College of Graphic Design in Sydney. Today, she creates in Photoshop and ink and has developed a style of working that blends both digital and analog elements. She enjoys playing with patterns to create interest, textures to create warmth, and brilliant colors to create movement in her work. She also loves creating a sense of light and shadow. Her work can be described as warm, friendly, charming, and fun. And her areas of focus are children’s illustration and editorial work revolving around the themes of women, food, and lifestyle. When she’s not tucked away in her studio, you will find her cooking Indian food, dancing to Bollywood music, or curled up with a book and a hot cup of masala chai.
