Hi! I'm Arati

I have been designing books and illustrating weird and wonderful things since graduating from art school in 2001.

My colourful artwork is inspired by nature – I draw dogs, cats and pretty florals – and is always quirky.

I make hand-drawn illustrations...

... using traditional media of gouache and acrylic, and also digitally on the iPad.

Every single line is drawn by me – you won't find any AI art here!

I want my artwork to bring you joy, to create a visual feast in your home, and make your space feel more like you, helping you to feel happy, fulfilled and utterly content.

I am based in west London...

... where I am very lucky to be able to work from my home studio.

Open Studios are coming up if you'd like to visit, so sign up to my email list to be notified!


All my products are made in the UK, using recyclable or biodegradable materials.

My company is a one-woman business – the current iteration of my online shop was launched in 2020 and continues to evolve.


I am fundraising for the Royal Free Charity

10% of every retail order will be donated to Royal Free Charity via Work for Good.

This charity is important to me – I personally experience their dedicated efforts every time visit their hospitals, where I have been an outpatient since 2013.


Upcoming Events

You can find me at several craft markets and art shows in London, most often at Ruislip Artisan Market.

In June 2024, I will also be participating in Harrow Open Studios.

Future events will be announced soon via VIP email list and instagram.


Behind the scenes...

If you'd like to come and join me behind the scenes in my studio, I make videos sharing my art process, studio vlogs, sketchbook tours, inspiration, art material swatching and much more, on my blog and Youtube channel.

Please enjoy watching them and thank you so much for your interest in my work!
