Aleesha Nandhra

Aleesha Nandhra is an illustrator and printmaker from London. Since graduating from the Cambridge School of Art she has created work for the likes of Los Angeles Times, Google, The Barbican and has been shortlisted for The World Illustration Awards (2018).

Thematically she is drawn to work that deals with nature, culture, mental health, music and everyday life. Narratives and visual storytelling play a huge part in her creative practice, both within and away from commercial illustration.

Aleesha also co-runs ‘Mil Ke Chai’, an artist-led cafe which aims to create spaces that nurture friendship and enterprise across class, caste and religion. Collaboration, community projects and creative education are all also very important to Aleesha and these feed back into her work and process.

It was certainly an interesting journey. Having studied illustration at degree level, I wanted Pathways to help me build new connections with others in a similar position to me, and to gain an understanding of the world of publishing.
