I have been drawing since I could hold a crayon... and I've continued
to push my illustrations with any free moment I can spare.

FAQ #1: Why do you illustrate mainly yogis?

 

I wanted to push myself as an artist and to illustrate the human form in a manner that I enjoy. At the same time, I was also beginning my personal yoga journey and I discovered a wonderful pool of inspiring yogis to reference through Instagram for inspiration.
