Poonam Mistry

  • 5 stars across 4 books
    Poonam Mistry is a freelance illustrator living in
    the UK. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in
    Graphic Design and Illustration from the University
    of Hertfordshire. Her style incorporates her love
    of nature and her Indian roots and explores the
    relationships between pattern, shapes and colour.
    Poonam's upbringing and childhood have heavily
    influenced her work, in particular being surrounded
    by Indian fabrics, Kalamkari textiles, Madhubani
    paintings and hand painted ornaments. These
    patterns and intricate details are featured heavily
    in her style of work. She loves folklore tales and
    stories of Hindu Gods and Goddesses and these
    have been a rich source of inspiration in a number
    of her illustrations. Poonam's work is drawn by
    hand with black ink before she uses computer
    software to add colour and adjust the composition
    of her illustrations.
