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 have been painting and drawing all my life. However, 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 signed up for Illustration and Surface Pattern design classes and that has given me the direction I need to create a professional portfolio.

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