Pallavi Bhargava’s story started the day she discovered art within her. She’s passionate about making colors, lines, and pixels talk. A graphic designer by day and an artist by night, the essence of her work is happy things for happy people as she is deeply motivated by positivity in attitude. In art, Typography is her best friend, while watercolor, her oldest. She is often seen lost in music by the band ‘Cigarettes After Sex’ while drawing inspiration on a piece of paper.
When not with a sketchbook and a brush, she’s often found spending time around good coffee and furry four-legged fur-balls.
