Namaste, Hello!

This is Bandana from Kathmandu, Nepal. I am an illustrator and designer working in children’s books, comics, illustrations, and print and publishing design. I have a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Kathmandu University Center for Art and Design in Graphic Communication.

I love exploring materials and new techniques of creating art and I am eternally in a quest to discover myself through my works.

In 2015, my debut picture book Sanu and the Big Storm was published by Fineprint Books. I have also illustrated various titles for other authors and publishers. 

In 2019, I co-founded Virangana Comics Collective as a platform for collaboration for illustrators and comics artists in Nepal, which published a comics anthology featuring eight nepali women artists.

Some other things I enjoy are travelling, food, scribbling in my journal, sewing my own clothes, and smelling like strawberries.
