Abinaya Kamalanathan

Abinaya is a self-taught, Tamil illustrator who lives in London. She uses pencil, water colour, gouache and digital techniques to tell playful, magical and funny stories. 

Abinaya is passionate about the way that illustration can help children to see themselves and all that they can be. She enjoys exploring themes around identity, mental health and holding onto a sense of wonder about the world around us. 

A few of her favourite illustrators are Mark Majewski, Beatrice Blue and Nick Sharratt.

I am so excited and grateful for this opportunity to become a mentee on the Pathways Into Children’s Publishing course. My hope is that I can better develop my skills and knowledge of children’s illustration for all young readers out there.
