ABOUT ME.

Hey there! I'm Sudakshina, an Illustrator, Designer, Entrepreneur, and CGI Artist whose work is inspired by everyday stories, ordinary emotions, food and love.

I've always had a deep love for storytelling. Whether it's through art, design, or animation, I believe that every medium has a unique way of telling a tale. My journey is a testament to this passion for narrative.

MY JOURNEY

1994 - 2012

I was born in India in 1994 and moved to Muscat, Oman, where I grew up as a chubby, happy kid. At the age of 16, I completed my Arangetram, a solo Bharatnatyam dance recital.

2012 - 2016

My academic journey took me to Anna University, Chennai, where I pursued a Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. During this phase, I joined AIESEC, organizing student exchange programs and youth business forums. I also embarked on a life-changing AIESEC internship in Thailand, where I volunteered as an English and art tutor for over a month.

2016 - 2020

The next chapter led me to Vancouver Film School, specializing in 3D animation and visual effects, particularly in modeling, texturing, and look development. I even spent some time working in a Deli, handling cheese, hummus, and olives as a clerk for a couple of months.

 

Eventually, I secured my first job at The Mill, Bangalore, where I started as an asset artist and was promoted to a generalist, working on modeling, texturing, look development, and grooming for various advertisements and music videos.

2020 - 2023

Life took a fascinating turn as I reflected on my growth as an artist. I decided to pursue new endeavors. This period has been incredibly eventful. I quit my job to bring a new idea to life, one driven by empathy and a sense of purpose.

That's when "BIND AND TELL" was born, a venture dedicated to creating keepsake memoirs. I proudly published my first book, "INMYBELLYOUGO," and crafted a prototype autobiography for my uncle while freelancing as a designer and illustrator.

During this time, I embarked on a break to travel and dedicated two months to learning yoga, earning my certification as an Ashtanga Vinyasa instructor (RYT200hr). I also achieved my Notion Essentials Certificate and began creating Notion templates to support my venture.
