Santhya shenbagam R – Designer

I'm a professional children's book illustrator based in the UK. I love drawing people, animals and rich landscapes.



I’m sandy, originally from India, but wandered around in United States for a brief time before finding my home here in United Kingdom.

I'm a professional illustrator specializing in children's picture books and chapter books. I'm very versatile in my work and love exploring different color palettes and styles. I love creating different worlds and characters. I love drawing people, Dinosaurs, animals and expressive landscapes.

I have worked with art directors from publishers like maverick and hachette. Having worked with self publishing authors and traditional publishers, I have specialized in packaging illustrations for self publishing in platforms like Amazon kdp and ingramspark. I can guide you through the process of self publishing from the beginning till the end.

My future wish is to work more on book covers, ethnically diverse stories and most importantly books with Unicorns and dinos. If you are looking for a professional and passionate illustrator, please give me a shout. I'm always on the lookout for captivating stories to illustrate. Please feel free to drop in and say hi. I would to chat about your story and vision for your book.
