Hi there!

My name is Leena Shanbhag. Welcome to my corner of the web. I live in Houston with my husband and son and our dog, Specs.

I trained as an Architect many moons ago but have always been partial to art and craft and surface pattern. I started out as an Architect in Bombay before moving to NYC to study Urban Design at Pratt Institute. Upon graduation, I worked as an Urban planner in Brooklyn. I designed maps, provided technical assistance to local community groups. I loved the work and I loved the City immensely!

A few years after moving to Houston, I decided to pursue my long held desire to make a living doing Art and Illustration. I have been painting and drawing all my life and enjoy experimenting with different media. But my favorites are watercolor, gouache and ink. If you are interested in buying prints of my artwork, you can find it here

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for stopping by!
